Differences Without Distinction

Wow, that didn’t take long. We’ll keep hearing publicly and privately how the AFT and NEA positions on No Child Left Behind are sooooooooooooo different (and the AFT prides itself on being more serious than the NEA) and how analysts must be sure to make that clear when we write or talk to media but Ed Week’s David Hoff pretty much puts that to rest. Doesn’t mean there are not any differences between the two unions but at this rate pretty soon we’re going to need microscopes to discern them.

Nut graf:

Last week, when the AFT announced it had endorsed the proposals of the Forum on Educational Accountability, it joined the NEA in a coalition that is lobbying to radically overhaul the NCLB law’s accountability measures.
