Keep Choice Alive

On Tuesday, edspresso's Ryan Boots takes perhaps a little bit too much credit, a little too soon, for the NYT story about NCLB enforcement (Spellings and NCLB enforcement).

Remember that the Department's newfound interest in enforcement mostly relates to assessments and teacher quality, not choice, and in fact the tutoring announcement on Wednesday does little to help the cause of NLCB choice and may in fact hinder it.

The Alliance may well deserve some credit for keeping the choice issue alive, and Boots points out that it's been done mostly without business group support (Roundtable, where are you?). But it still seems way too early -- and a little too much -- for anyone to claim victory.

UPDATE: Boots responds, quite reasonably, here.
