Rove Speaks: Bush May Alter NCLB on His Own

I’m back from an NCLB-free vacation. Thanks to Alyson Klein for taking over the blog and to Sean Cavanagh for making a cameo appearance.

I’ve been playing catch up on NCLB news for the past 48 hours. Perhaps the most interesting tidbit I’ve found was buried in this AP story about President Bush’s plans to assert his executive authority during the remainder of this term.

“We have No Child Left Behind, which we can either do by law or regulation; we want to do it by law,” outgoing presidential adviser Karl Rove said.

This adds a new wrinkle to those of us tracking NCLB reauthorization. If Congress fails to get a bill passed, the Bush administration may make changes on its own.

I’m sure I’m not the only one wondering what they have in mind.

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