Monday Night is Union Night at the Convention

The Democrats are starting to flesh out their speaker line-up for the convention, which starts Monday night.

Opening night will feature a tribute to No Child Left Behind architect Sen. Ted Kennedy, and will also feature prime-time speeches by the country's top two teachers' union leaders: Reg Weaver of the National Education Association (who turns over the helm to Dennis Van Roekel) and the American Federation of Teachers' Randi Weingarten.

Over at EdWeek's new blog, Teacher Beat, read my colleague Vaishali Honawar's take on the merit pay debate in Denver, and how that ties into the convention.
