Last week was full of NCLB news, and you can read it in the current issue of Education Week.

For Unions Assail Teacher Ideas in NCLB Draft, Alyson Klein and I give the highlights of the Sept. 10 hearing and the fallout from it. (Much of that was covered in the blog here, here, and here.) Take note of comments from Rep. Howard P. “Buck” McKeon’s spokeswoman and from Amanda L. Farris at the Department of Education. They both want pay-for-performance projects included in the reauthorized NCLB.

In Draft Proposal Seeks to Equalize School Resources, Bess Keller explains how one small change in Title I could make a dramatic difference in the ways schools are financed.

And while we’re talking about teacher pay, Houston approved a pay-for-performance plan last week, according to Houston Board OKs Revamped Performance-Pay Plan.

Finally, the chairman of the House Education and Labor Committee says in this commentary that the Department of Education has made it too easy for states to make accountability targets. Later, Rep. McKeon responded here. You can read my comments on the exchange here and here.

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