Back in January, Rep. George Miller told me that he and Sen. Edward M. Kennedy had a plan to reauthorize NCLB by this spring. That seemed like an ambitious goal, then. Now it looks unattainable. Indeed, the prospect of the law being reauthorized in 2008 dimmed last week with the news of the Massachusetts Democrat’s brain tumor.

When will NCLB be reauthorized?

In last week’s Gadfly, Checker Finn explains the arcane legal reasons why Congress doesn’t need to act soon. Eduwonk lays out a good case for 2010. Back in November, I sent BoardBuzz into a tizzy by projecting NCLB might not be done until 2011.

What’s your guess?
