Confused Signals From the USDE

Sam Dillon's NYT piece on the current state of NCLB enforcement gives a nice update on where things are regarding qualified teachers and state assessment systems, and an overview of how Spellings' tactics have changed (Most States Fail Demands in Education Law). But there's not much explanation or analysis about why Spellings has shifted course so dramatically -- just some mumbo-jumbo from her about how states' homework has come due. Thanks, teach.

In the meantime, the confused signals from ED continue with today's Chicago Sun Times reporting that Chicago schools will continue to be able to provide their own tutoring as in the past, despite being a low performing district (City schools get reprieve on tutoring).
