Blog Roundup

By Alexander Russo — October 11, 2007 1 min read

Forget about Obama not wearing that lapel pin -- now he’s gone completely crazy, according to Scott Elliott (Obama: Let illegals get aid for college). The AFTies, too, apparently. They poke at the President for claiming to have invented NAEP (Pres. Bush Invented NAEP) but seem to forget that taking the test was voluntary for states before NCLB. Now, we do have NAEP scores for every state. Meanwhile, Joanne Jacobs is calling for votes (The 2007 Weblog Awards). Vote for her blog, then vote for mine. That is, if I’m even nominated. Over at WakEd, they combine ‘cafeteria’ and ‘auditorium’ and get Cafetorium. Education Election introduces a new blogger and a new candidate (Fred Thompson on NCLB, and an introduction).
