Press release roundup: blueprint reactions.
The press releases flowing into my inbox in the past week are mostly some form of “Association for XX Reacts to Administration’s Blueprint for ESEA Reauthorization,” and they are utterly unsurprising. A sampling (and I am not doing this again, so please do not take this as an invitation for more press releases):
—Education Industry Association: thumbs down (no required supplemental education services—but don’t worry; there will be plenty of other ways to make money off the law)
—U.S. Chamber of Commerce: thumbs up
—Commission on No Child Left Behind: thumbs up
—National PTA: thumbs down (“no comprehensive plan for meaningful family engagement”)
—NEA and AFT: thumbs down
