Did the Teachers' Unions Endorse the Wrong Guy?

USA Today editorial writer Richard Whitmire makes that case in an EdWeek commentary you can read here. The gist of Whitmire's piece? John McCain will do more to gut NCLB then will Barack Obama.

Kentucky Primary: A Missed Opportunity?

From contributing blogger Alyson Klein: Kentucky and Oregon hold their Democratic primaries today. And I have to say, I'm sorry we didn't get to the Blue Grass State earlier in the election cycle, when it might have actually mattered more.
