Don’t forget -- there are two reasonably big events tomorrow in DC.
The NCLB event, sponsored by the big four (Miller, Kennedy, McKeon, and Enzi) includes as witnesses mostly the usual suspects. The hearing, titled “Elementary and Secondary Education Act Reauthorization: Improving NCLB to Close the Achievement Gap,” will be held in room 2175 of the Rayburn House Office Building on Tuesday, March 13, 2007, at 9:30 a.m. Click at bottom to read the members’ pull quotes.
It’s interesting to note that while there is no one from the USDE that is on the scheduled witness list, Spellings herself is scheduled to show up at an event later the same day called “Higher Education after the Spellings Commission: An Assessment.” At the Wohlstetter Conference Center, Twelfth Floor, AEI, 1150 Seventeenth Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20036.
And yes, there’s a decent list of upcoming events at the AACTE events page (AACTE), which I’m glad to know about. Now if it only had an RSS feed (hint, hint).
