Where's McKeon Going With This?

Given how hot the AYP "loophole" issue has been over the past few weeks -- it's arguably the thing that finally pushed the committee into holding hearings -- how interesting and strange that McKeon is starting out his hearings on Thursday with curriculum-related issues (including, I'm sure, whether NCLB has "narrowed" what's being taught).

True enough, the curriculum issue has been a big and persistent concern about NCLB. From the witness list full of teachers and principals, it's hard to tell whether McKeon is intending to refute or support the narrowing argument. It'll be an interesting first look at the new committee.
