A couple of sharp-eyed folks have noted this afternoon that, while the NEA seems to have gotten what it wants (or thinks it can get) from the Miller draft, the California Teachers -- powerful forces for Miller, McKeon, and Pelosi -- are taking a much harder anti-NCLB line. See NCLB II post here (Ca. Teachers Oppose “Miller/Pelosi” Bill), and Schools Matter here (which contrasts the NEA and CTA positions): “We must thank the CTA for taking the position that the Suits for the NEA will not.”
