Clowns To The Left Of Her, Jokers To The Right

EdSec Spellings is between more than a couple rocks and hard places these days. While lots of folks on the Hill are ramping up to see if the Administration proposes "enough" of a funding increase for NCLB in the budget, another set of folks are pushing at the EdSec to enforce the public school transfer provision in the current law, which has been blocked, sidestepped, and generally ignored for the last five years. To wit: "Leaders of 25 state and national policy organizations sent their request through a letter to Spellings on Friday."

Everyone's failure to implement the public school choice provision (and its structural weaknesses) have only served to create support for a stronger transfer provision that could include private schools. That's exactly what the President outlined in the SOTU.
