Education Crossroads

In spite of recent declarations to focus on the nation’s education agenda, the reauthorization of NCLB is at a standstill because no formal legislation has been introduced, according to The Washington Post.

Polski3's View from Here ponders the implications of this gridlock:

So, does this mean NCLB will continue as it currently is written?
Does this mean that NCLB will not be funded for the 2007-08 fiscal year (or was it already funded by Congress for fiscal year 2007-08?)
Is this action on part of the Senate Education Committee a way to kill NCLB?

David Hoff of Education Week speculates that if Congress doesn’t reauthorize soon, the current version of law could remain as is for the next three years.
