Conspiracy theorists are ignoring NCLB’s lefty origins and labor union funding sources, says EIA. Eduwonk is still selling Spellings for governor. I’m not buying, but what do I know. Press coverage keeps suggesting that NCLB won’t get reauthorized anytime soon, observes the AFT blog. That means it will [not] happen soon.

Meantime, Slate blogger Mickey Kaus doesn’t think much about district efforts to reorganize low performing schools as LA is planning (and NYC and Miami have done). This is what happens when smart but not necessarily knowledgeable folks play education pundit. Via AFT. Meanwhile, Sherman Dorn says that the Bush veto threat is petulant and irrelevant. Charlie Barone goes all psychological on us and says that how we view NCLB is a snapshot of...how we view ourselves? Diane and Deborah are also deep into their discussion, talking about the uncertainty of knowledge, whether it be in education or medicine.
