Educational K - 12 Title I Use of Best Practices, by Dr. Carla D. Harris, contains Title I funding and program applications. It unveils some strategies for the implementation of Title I funded educational programs and outreach services. Also, it states the primary goal of the aforementioned funding, which is to ensure that every kid gets fair opportunity to obtain a high-quality education, while meeting challenging academic standards.

The book shows the purposes of Title I rules and regulations. It provides ways to create sustainable income. Again, it explains the subordinate power theory in order to give school leaders a thorough understanding of students' ability to use the above theory to affect program change positively or negatively. Dr. Carla gives a baseline for educational leaders to build on when looking upon a classroom model and an online instructional program.

Written in a textbook format, this publication is structured properly. Comprising 207 pages, it's comprehensible and engaging. It contains valuable educational information, and it challenges the traditional model of the K - 12 organizational structure, while encouraging educational leaders to work outside their comfort zone for improvement. Though the book is presented in a straightforward manner, it's content is heavy. Hence, those who do not enjoy reading serious books may steer clear of this one. However, it'll be a worthwhile read for readers who are interested in getting a basic understanding of the Title I program.

While advising leaders in public school systems to follow the laws given to them by the federal, state, and district governments about the governance of financial and administrative policies, the book tells about the training of students to enable them deal with stress in the classroom, since prolonged exposure to unhealthy stress can lead to memory and cognitive deficits.

In an intriguing way, this book examines best practices inherent to schools and Title I policies. It discusses Individualized Education Program (IEP), comprehensive program strategies, effective program management practices, growth professionalism, change management, educational data mining, commercial advertising in schools, and so forth.

Lastly, based on research, the book consists of a wealth of information. It's eye-opening and helpful. It was exceptionally well edited because I didn't see any grammar errors or typos. Therefore, I rate it 4 out of 4 stars. Since it is written well and carries information for a target audience, I couldn't rate it less than 4 stars, and it'll be very useful for elementary and secondary school leaders in the United States.

Our country just implemented this in our education system, and it seems to me that they weren't prepared. I might find this book helpful enough since a lot of the teachers I know are struggling about K-12, of how to make the best out of it to help children. Thanks for this review! :tiphat:

This sounds like it might be good for teachers or potential teachers. I don't think the content is for me as I don't even have children. Thanks anyway!

I think I would be one to steer clear of this book. A little too technical sounding to me. However, I am sure this is good information for those in education. Thanks for your review.
