Slavin Set To Slam Reading First At House Hearing

It's all about events this week, I guess. Now the House has a Labor-HHS-Education appropriations hearing scheduled for Wednesday, and -- wowza -- they're having Bob Slavin (ie, the wronged party under Reading First) testify. Should be fun.

"The Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education and Related Agencies Subcommittee of the Senate Appropriations Committee will hold a hearing on "Federal Funding for the No Child Left Behind Act." Witnesses: Margaret Spellings; secretary of Education; Jack Jennings, president and CEO, Center on Education Policy; Paul Vallas, CEO, the School District of Philadelphia, PA; Jane Babcock, superintendent, Keokuk Community School District, Keokuk, IA; Gene Wilhoit, executive director, Council of Chief State School Officers; and Robert Slavin, director, Center for Research and Reform in Education at Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD. Time and Location: 2:30 p.m.; 124 Dirksen SOB. Contact: 202.224.7363." From USDE via AACTE.
