The leaders of the House Education and Labor Committee agree that their attempt to reauthorize NCLB is at a standstill. But they disagree about who is to blame for that.

Here’s the take of Rep. George Miller, D-Calif., the chairman of the committee: “Congress offered the president an opportunity to resuscitate his legacy by working in a bipartisan way on comprehensive reforms to the No Child Left Behind law, and he rejected it.”

And here’s the perspective of Rep. Howard P. “Buck” McKeon, R-Calif., the senior GOP member of the committee: “Unfortunately, more than a year into their congressional majority, Democrats have all but ignored the pressing need to revitalize this law that impacts our nation’s schools.”

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