Campaign K-12 Needs a Break, Will Be Reading Harry Potter

Actually, Campaign K-12 will continue on, but I need a break. Blogging is hard work!

In all seriousness, I'll be out of the office until after Memorial Day, leaving this blog in the capable hands of frequent contributor Alyson Klein, who covers the federal beat here. My colleagues Mark Walsh, who covers the school legal beat, and David Hoff, NCLB reporter extraordinaire, may also make guest appearances.

As for Harry Potter, I'm perhaps one of only a handful on Earth who hasn't read this series. But apparently I should, because the villain of the seven volumes is the inspiration behind a teachers' union campaign to oust Washington State Schools Superintendent Terry Bergeson. Read the Associated Press exclusive story here.
