Friday Frenzy: Democrats Still Don’t Like NCLB, and Other Earth-Shattering Developments

By Michele McNeil — April 17, 2008 1 min read

In case you missed Wednesday’s Democratic debate in Pennsylvania ... well, you didn’t miss much. The candidates very much like teachers, and still hate the No Child Left Behind Act.

And here are a couple of other good reads from this week:

USA Today‘s Richard Whitmire implies in a Politico piece that there is hope for us all... in that Sen. John McCain may make education a near-top tier issue.

My colleague David Hoff visited Pennsylvania for a pre-primary story that shows how voters can curse their way onto the American Federation of Teachers’ “Do Not Contact” list.

And over at the Fordham Foundation’s new Flypaper blog, Mike Petrilli finally has a forum to dish out all of those pent-up blog posts he’s been harboring. ... Worth reading is this one that talks about Linda Darling-Hammond’s response to a story in The New Republic about Sen. Barack Obama.
