NCLB: The reax
Let the debate begin. The experts have begun poring over the "discussion draft" NCLB reauthorization bill from the House Education and Labor Committee. And they've started issuing their first impressions.

US Rep. Kathy Castor, one of the moderate Democrat newcomers whose support is widely sought after, isn't rushing to judgment. Rather, she put out an announcement saying she wants to hear from parents, teachers and other interested folks about the proposal, which can be found here. She's asking for comments to her e-mail, Kathy.Castor@mail.house.gov.
