As September’s End Nears, Legislative Action Awaits

All month, key lawmakers have said they would take significant legislative action on NCLB in September. Rep. George Miller, D-Calif., has said he wants to get a bill out of the Education and Labor Committee, and Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., the chamber’s education chairman, has been promising to introduce an NCLB bill.

Since Monday is the beginning of the last full week of September, Alyson Klein and I asked around about what might happen next week.

The House Education and Labor Committee will not mark up a NCLB bill next week.

Sen. Kennedy may introduce his NCLB bill or publish a discussion draft next week.

It’s looking as if Rep. Miller will miss his goal, and Sen. Kennedy still has a chance to meet his. Check back here next week for the latest updates.

A version of this news article first appeared in the NCLB: Act II blog.
