Franken on NCLB: Reform It or Scrap It

| 2 Comments

Comedian Al Franken is running for U.S. Senate in Minnesota. His position on NCLB is that the law needs to be "dramatically reformed or scrapped altogether." Franken, a Democrat, sounds a like a cross between John Edwards and Bill Richardson.

His opponent, Sen. Norm Coleman, is a co-sponsor of a bipartisan NCLB bill that would keep much of the law intact, but give it a new name.

Al has another opponent in the race for party endorsement: Jack Nelson-Pallmeyer. Jack links the big issues in education: funding, with the wars and military spending. Al offers policy wonking on education, but doesn't get to the root of the matter: that priorities toward war and military spending are suffocating education and other social spending, as well as destroying our economy.
Please do your home work and find out who is in the Minnesota race, and then please accurately report on it.

David,
What do you think will happen with NCLB?
