Doing the NCLB 180

Huge thank you's to Alexander Russo for noting Hillary Clinton's 180 on NCLB. Alexander comments here, and leads you to David Nather's Beyond the Dome blog here. Richard Whitmire also has been terrific about posting leads on Clinton's education comments, which have been secondary to economy and war pronouncements.
Despite the new toss-the-baby-and-bathwater rhetoric, we're still not hearing much about what she would offer as a replacement to a multi-faceted law that began life as civil rights legislation (Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965) focused on closing an achievement gap.
