More Midterm Tea-Leaf Reading
EdWeek put out a roundup of election implications last night that includes some tidbits not previously available -- but not earth-shattering, either (Education Week). At least it wasn't full of random speculation and reported some news. The piece points to banal statements by Spellings, President Bush, and others about NCLB, and shows how little change on the committees there's likely to be (unless folks later try and get off and get on better committees, as they often do). It also notes that in the few places where NCLB was anything of a real issue, the candidates more critical of NCLB were still unable to defeat the incumbents (Shays and Lieberman).
