Berliner, David C. – Kappa Delta Pi Record, 2009
Backers of the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) law based their support on the belief that teachers and administrators primarily were responsible for low levels of achievement by America's poor.

Garrett, Joyce Lynn – Kappa Delta Pi Record, 2008
The author of this article argues that, just as Americans were shocked into action, when the Soviet Union launched Sputnik in 1957, by strengthening STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) in the educational curriculum, Americans must be shocked again.
