What Was Good Enough In 2005 Isn't Good Enough Now

I'm still not exactly sure how, in the carefully-choreographed no surprises world of Congressional hearings, there were actually a couple of mildly unexpected developments at yesterday's monster NCLB gabfest: the CTA's media campaign against the Miller draft (see previous post below) and the late-breaking flareup with Reg Weaver over merit pay (that's why the teachers didn't go first, eh?). The AP has that one covered here, via EdWeek. You can check out the long list of speakers and download their testimony here. You can watch the whole six hours of testimony here. Things get fun at around the 5:23 mark. [Listening back, it sounds like there was a breakdown in talks between Miller's staff and the NEA folks sometime last week, during which the NEA folks were looking for but didn't get something more than they were willing to take in 2005.]
