Throw-Away Kids... is an in-depth exploration into the hundreds of thousands of children who our nation s No Child Left Behind policy, commonly known as NCLB, has in fact left behind! Everyday somewhere in this country hundreds of children who have been abused, neglected, abandoned or otherwise traumatized appear in public schools. And although these children are often times afraid, angry and confused, they, like other children want to learn and to be a participant in their school environment. However, because these very special children are not labeled Special Ed their educational needs have grossly gone unaddressed. Embrace this insightful, relevant and profound look at the educational plight of the Foster Child.
