Recognized as one of the outstanding academic books published in 1982, "American Educators' Encyclopedia" has now been revised to reflect a decade of change. More than 200 items have been added to serve the needs of today's educators. Additions range from Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome, Attention Deficit Disorders, various computer languages and statistical packages, Schema Theory, and Teacher Warranty Program, to Zero Rejection. One-third of the original items have been significantly updated or deleted. The authors have diligently kept the same characteristic and quality of the first edition, which provided readers with a quick, accurate understanding of education terms and a ready reference for further direction. The revised "American Educators' Encyclopedia "is an excellent reference for today's teacher and parent.

Additions, updating, and deletions in this second edition reflect the vast changes in American education within the past decade. The original format, proving so successful, has not been changed. References follow each item, and a variety of appendices cover a range of areas. The length and language of each item gives the reader a concise understanding that allows for accessible, comprehensive referencing.
