The conservative wing of the GOP pushed Rep. John Kline, R-Minn., the chairman of the House Education Committee, to what amounts to a major watering down of the teacher-evaluation portion of a bill to rewrite the No Child Left Behind Act.

Several groups oppose amendments to the House's ESEA bill dealing with teacher evaluation.

Their chief complaint of the STEM Education Coalition is that the bill would abolish the Mathematics and Science Partnerships program.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has put members on notice that it could consider a vote in favor of the Student Success Act as an un-business friendly.

On the eve of a possible vote in the U.S. House of Representatives on long-stalled legislation to rewrite the No Child Left Behind Act, the bill's road to passage is still somewhat bumpy.

Starting tomorrow, paid banner ads will run on education blogs in 10 Democratic congressional districts urging voters to tell representatives: "Put your kids first, not Washington bureaucrats."

The stakes are really high both for House GOP leadership and for the No Child Left Behind Act rewrite itself as the leadership works to round up votes in advance of planned floor action.

School choice will likely be part of the debate when the House of Representatives takes up a bill to renew the Elementary and Secondary Education Act.

Members of the U.S. House of Representatives have filed 74 amendments to the Elementary and Secondary Education Act reauthorization bill that could go before the full House on Thursday.

If a rewrite of the No Child Left Behind Act goes to the floor of the House next week, look for a hot policy debate over the Title I funding formula.
