Damned if you do...

Poor Secretary Spellings. Yesterday, the Dept. of Education allowed increased flexibility for Virginia on four of their 12 requests related to NCLB. But did it please the Virginians? You be the judge:

In a statement, [Virginia Board of Education President Thomas M. Jackson Jr.] called the federal decision "at best, halting progress" and said the U.S. Department of Education "continues on a course that undercuts support for [No Child Left Behind] . . . and encourages confrontation."

..."This continued disrespect toward a state that has faithfully implemented the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 is bewildering," he wrote.

I guess that's a "no." The WaPo article's here.
