When The EdSec Meets The Blob

So apparently the EdSec is actually showing up at the NSBA event in DC today -- I wonder if she knows (or cares) what they're saying about her precious little NCLB on their blogsite. According to BoardBuzz, American schools are not in crisis, AYP just needs some...softening, and hey, Maggie, send cash. As for any new elements or requirements? Not so much.

"We cannot improve the law just by piling more layers onto it," opines the Buzz. "Instead, we must focus on improving NCLB’s accountability framework first and foremost. Get that part (and of course, the funding) right, and then think about any possible additions."

The rest of the week, the EdSec is in GA for some school and group events, back in DC for the National Prayer Breakfast, and then in NC at the Annual Emerging Issues Forum at the McKimmon Center for Extension & Continuing Education at North Carolina State University on higher ed. Last but not least, Friday with "Hispanic leaders" on NCLB.
