Wait Until September, Says Miller

There's wall-to-wall coverage of the Miller speech on Monday morning, which tells you just how little is going on. Sherman Dorn goes point by point here. EdWeek's Mark Walsh has it here. (wait until September). Sara Mead sees room on multiple measures here. The prepared text is here. And the NYT coverage focusing on reactions to the speech is here.

UPDATE: What I'm not clear on is why Miller felt like he needed to make this speech, which doesn't appear to have been particularly reassuring to either side of the strengthen/weaken NCLB debate, or what he hoped to gain. We already knew that things were going slowly, and that multiple measures (anything other than math and reading tests) was an issue. But it's not like Miller has been giving regular updates in the past. Hmmm. I'll ask around and see what I can find out.
