Congress Won't -- And Shouldn't -- Fix NCLB; Spellings Could

The NYT editorial page weighs in with its own pro-NCLB editorial today (School Reform in Danger), pointing out problems with teacher quality and AYP data quality among other things.

It's not nearly as fiesty or pointed as others like last week's WSJ editorial, and it also calls for an unlikely and perhaps unwise solution to the problem: Congressional action.

Congressional action isn't really required if the USDE would just toughen up and stop giving out waivers like candy. It's also neither likely or wise, given the hundreds of problematic amendments that would result if someone tried to put through an NCLB amendment.
