Last Tuesday, Senator Tom Harkin (D–IA) introduced a much-anticipated proposal to rewrite No Child Left Behind (NCLB) and has announced that committee markup on the legislation will begin this Wednesday...Since it would be "for the children", there's no way for teachers unions to be against this proposal :)
For example, the bill would codify Obama Administration education priorities, such as the “equitable distribution” of effective teachers among schools.
