A New Lesson: Helping Students Understand Terrorism

Following the attacks on the United States on September 11, 2001, educators had to address two subjects with students: terrorism and grief. ASCD has compiled resources to provide insight, information, and advice in dealing with tragedy and intolerance, including links to Web sites of other education, health, and tolerance organizations. Look for these resources on the ASCD Web site (www.ascd.org).

ESEA Reauthorization

The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), first passed in 1965, was part of a larger effort in the United States to attack poverty. Title I, the most significant portion of the act, provided financial assistance to schools with high concentrations of poverty. The 107th Congress is now debating the reauthorization of the ESEA and may make significant changes to program requirements and accountability measures for receiving Title I funds.
For more information about ESEA and the reauthorization process, visit the ASCD Web site on the topic (http://webserver3.ascd.org/web/focus). This site features the latest updates on the reauthorization, important information about what the legislation will mean for schools, and ways to get involved.
