Bill Taylor, Iconoclast

From today’s WSJ ($):

“The fact of the matter is that a couple Democrats, in particular [Senator] Ted Kennedy and [Representative] George Miller, helped twist the arm of this administration and brought about a really large increase in appropriations for No Child Left Behind,” said Mr. Taylor, dismissing Connecticut’s plea for more money. “I also think the National Education Association,” which agitated for the suit, “is really doing damage to the interests of kids and to the interests of its own members. We’ve got to figure out a way to get really good teachers into central schools, and this law pushes for that.”
