Those who were responsible for crafting essa ESSA sought to shift the focus from federal accountability and oversight to more local and state-based control; under President Obama’s waiver program, CCSSI and RTT initiatives, the direction of education policy was one on increased federal control over education.

For example, parental accountability laws and case processing standards have become common (National Criminal Justice Association 1997; Butts and Sanborn 1999). Accountability laws make parents civilly or criminally liable for the behavior of their children. Case processing laws and standards place time limits on the amount of time the courts can allow for the adjudication and/or disposition of delinquency cases. Alongside of such changes are new federally sponsored efforts to promote a range of other policies, such as expanding the use of risk and needs assessment and restorative justice programs (Andrews and Marble 2003).

The creation of a Department of Homeland Security is one more key step in the President’s national strategy for homeland security” (Bush “The Department” 1). In 2002 the Department of Homeland Security formally became a department of government after congress passed the Homeland Security Act (Homeland Security – Creation of the department of Homeland Security). The Homeland Security Act of 2002 states that, “the primary mission of the Department is to prevent terrorist attacks within the United States, reduce the vulnerability of the United States to terrorism, and to minimize the damage, and assist in the recovery, from terrorist attacks that do occur

Since 1957 with the “Missile Gap”(Zhao, 2009, p. 19), Americans have been playing the educational reform game.

Policies that would prevent another attack, expose terrorist, and make Americans feel safe again. From a Machiavellian perspective, many of these policies were justly implemented.
More importantly, the outcome of this study can be a measure to help stakeholders establish whether there is a need to design and implement teacher technology training. Therefore, providing a structured online support network (OSN) can prepare, assist, and support teachers with becoming agents of implementing and utilizing innovative and available technology resources (Blau & Peled,
In today’s society we are getting attached to our cell phones, tablets, iPad, computers, and even to our televisions.
