You’ll need a subscription to read this Roll Call story, but the headline tells the tale: Talks Stall on No Child Left Behind.

The principals on the House Education and Labor Committee aren’t making any progress on the issues separating them, the story says. It mentions merit pay for teachers as a roadblock, but doesn’t name others. Judging from past statements, the list includes multiple measures, choice and supplemental educational services, local assessments, and maybe some smaller details.

The story concludes noting that the clock is ticking. We’re in mid-October, and there are two months at most left before Congress shuts down for the year. Factor in breaks around Election Day and Thanksgiving, and there’s not much time left to get NCLB through the House this year.

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