Two developments worth noting.
First, Gray Lady waking up? Looks like at least a little glasnost at the news side of the NYT. Excellent article by Avi Salzman about the goings on in CT. Reporting with more nuance from the NYT is not good news for anti-NCLB jihadists.
Second, and also ominously, The Washington Times (with help from the aforementioned Antonucci) breaks the NEA memo that basically shows that this lawsuit is about public relations not legal issues. In short, the memo undercuts the legal foundation for the argument that Congress is imposing anything on the states. Isn’t this an inappropriate use of the courts?
Again, seems as likely as not that the NEA will rue the day it decided to go down this road.
