The chicken-chasing queen of Lamar County by Janice N Harrington( Book )

4 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 1,736 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A young farm girl tries to catch her favorite chicken, until she learns something about the hen that makes her change her ways. Meet one smart chicken chaser. She can catch any chicken on her grandmother's farm except one - the elusive Miss Hen. In a hilarious battle of wits, the spirited narrator regales readers with her campaign to catch Miss Hen, but this chicken is "fast as a mosquito buzzing and quick as a fleabite." Our chicken chaser has her mind set on winning, until she discovers that sometimes it's just as satisfying not to catch chickens as it is to catch them. A fresh voice full of sass and inventive, bold collage illustrations full of surprises create a childlike escapade brimming with funny high jinks that leads the reader on a merry, memorable chase

State plans for the education of homeless children and youth : a selected survey of thirty-five states by Shelley Jackson( Book )

2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thirty-five state plans for the education of homeless children and youth as mandated by the 1987 Stewart B. McKinney Homeless Assistance Act are reviewed and analyzed in this report. Specifically, the act requires that states designate agency authorization for a child's educational placement, procedures for placement dispute resolution, assurances for enrollment in students'"best interests," and provisions for equal educational quality and transfer of student records. Findings indicate that states generally: (1) authorized education officials to make placement decisions; (2) created or adopted dispute resolution mechanisms but failed to specify child placement, time limits, and due process protections; (3) recommended flexible district records transfer policies; and (4) encountered difficulty in planning for homeless student transportation. The study advocates that states adopt more expansive definitions of "homeless" students, grant placement power to parents, implement more efficient dispute resolution mechanisms, specify local district responsibility in service provision and records transfer, and meet student transportation needs. The U.S. Department of Education is encouraged to assume a strong leadership role. Ten tables outline provisions of the 35 state plans. (Lmi)
