Updated: McCain's Education Speech

(Update: Read John McCain's education plan here.)

Sen. John McCain, whose speech in Cincinnati to the NAACP will be covered by EdWeek's Alyson Klein, is expected to emphasize school choice and scholarship programs for students in low-income, poor-performing school districts. The presumptive GOP nominee is also expected to support alternative certification routes for teachers, more tutoring for poor students, and merit-pay programs for teachers.

For more about Sen. Barack Obama's speech yesterday to the NAACP, read Alyson's story here, and her blog entry here.
