Bush Offers "Blueprint" for NCLB: Partisan Split Expected as Strategies Diverge
Hoff, David J.
Education Week, v26 n21 p1, 25 Jan 2007
This article reports how President Bush's new blueprint for the No Child Left Behind Act will create a partisan debate on educational strategies. In its plans for NCLB, the administration said it wants private and charter schools to create competition that would spur improvement in substandard schools. Democrats, however, have their own priorities for improving the lowest-performing schools. They would create incentives for teachers to work in the toughest schools, give teachers professional development in skills necessary to improve student achievement, and attempt to improve states' services to those schools. As such, there are fears that this partisan divide might unnecessarily sidetrack Congress as it tries to reauthorize NCLB this year.
