Foreword by David K. Cohen

"This is an important book in part because it suggests an entire world of novel issues with which practitioners and policymakers are trying to deal as they pursue efforts to improve instruction."

–From the Foreword

Nancy Jennings examines the impact of policy decision-making in the classroom, and details how classroom teachers implement state-level policy directives in reading. The book looks at policy implementation through a teaching and learning frame exploring how and what teachers learn from state policy and how policy makers "teach" their messages.
