Educators Resource Guide is designed to provide educators, administrators, and other education professionals with immediate access to a unique combination of educational resources, along with important educational statistics and rankings.

Educators Resource Guide includes associations, publications, trade shows, workshops, and training programs. This resource is designed not only to help educators advance professionally, but also to give them the resources they need to help their students, their schools, and their state meet educational standards. It provides tools for classroom and career management, as well as resources that truly make a difference in job, school, and student performance.

All listings in this comprehensive volume are thoughtfully organized in 13 chapters and 76 subchapters, making information significantly easier to access than the unfocused data available online or the scattered in dozens of different sources. Statistics and rankings are designed to help states, school districts, and individual educators better understand their educational environment and make informed decisions on careers, curricula, and funding.

Educators Resource Guide includes 6,408 listings in Section One, more than 140 of which are new. This section includes 7,956 key contact names, 4,506 fax numbers, 3,718 e-mail addresses, and 5,199 web sites, and is categorized into 13 helpful chapters for easy research: Associations & Organizations, Conferences & Trade Shows, Consultants, Teaching Opportunities Abroad, Financial Resources, Government Agencies, Professional Development, Publications, Publishers, Research Centers, School Supplies, Testing Resources, and Software, Hardware & Internet Resources.

Section Two includes 236 tables and charts in 24 total categories on national and state statistics. From elementary to post-secondary levels, these statistics and rankings include data not only on the American educational system, but also on Canadian and international education. Using the most current data available, this section helps to complete the picture for educators making career development decisions, for school administrators interested in comparing fiscal health and educational scores, and for anyone doing educational research. The main categories in this section include: Educational Attainment, Elementary & Secondary Education, Federal Programs for Education & Related Activities, International Comparisons of Education, Libraries & Educational Technology, Outcomes of Education, Postsecondary Education, and Canadian Education Statistics. Following the statistics and rankings is a Glossary with over 100 education terms from Accountability to Vocational.

Section Three contains three indexes to help the user save as much research time as possible: an Entry & Publisher Name Index with an alphabetical list of both entry names and the companies that publish the listed material; a Geographic Index featuring state-by-state listings of all entries; and a Subject Index organized by core subjects plus Special Education, Technology, and No Child Left Behind (NCLB) listings.

Reviews
