Spellings Letter; Teacher Quality Draft Later Today

By Alexander Russo — September 06, 2007 1 min read

Thanks to the Ed Trust, here’s a PDF of the Spellings letter to Miller that she promised yesterday, listing problems she and others have with the M&M discussion draft. Speaking of which, Miller said that Title II and the rest would be posted sometime today, which will help us see whether the teacher quality elements of NCLB are going to be strengthened or -- is such a thing possible? -- weakened. (There’s a nod to teacher quality in the form of an attempt to close the equitability loophole in Miller’s Title I proposal, according to EdWeek’s David Hoff, but if they couldn’t do that in 2001 they don’t seem likely to take care of it now.)
