What is ERIC?


ERIC in this case is not a boy's name, but the acronym for Educational Resources Information Center. This database contains extensive coverage on educational research and information with more than 1.2 million items indexed since 1966. ERIC is a busy database. Teachers, researchers, librarians and students conduct six million searches each month. Why Select ERIC? Interested in learning more about the renewal of the No Child Left Behind Act? Connect to ERIC and search for that topic and in the 2006 October issue of Phi Delta Kappan, which the Canton Public Library subscribes to that journal. You'll find an article summarizing the effects of the NCLB on school districts conducted by the Center on Education Policy called, "Ten Big Effects of the No Child Left Behind Act on Public Schools."
