NEA and No Child Left Behind

The NEA (one of the nation’s largest teachers unions) filed suit against the federal government this week over the No Child Left Behind Act. Eduwonk, an education policy blog run by the Progressive Policy Institute, is a site that CC readers interested in education should become familiar with. They had this to say about the action and its various possible consequences. Moneyquote

“Besides, the core of the lawsuit boils down to the contention that No Child Left Behind is forcing school districts (and by extension states) to spend too much on education. This is, to put it mildly, a novel argument from the NEA.”

In related news, education blogger Jenny D. thinks RFK would have supported NCLB and brings out the transcripts to back it up.
