ABSTRACT
Editorial. Presents the thoughts of the author about the U.S. Department of Education's requirement that schools develop 'scientifically-based research' to show how they are spending millions in No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) grants to make their students better readers and score better on standardized tests. Finding that the U.S. has made virtually no progress in raising student achievement levels over 30 years despite a 90 percent increase in the amount of public money expended per students; Opinion that school librarians have an opportunity to demonstrate their tangible contributions to student achievement through evidence-based practice.
