Governors Uniting for NCLB Changes

Another from Ed Week this time about a National Governors meeting. It seems they disagree about the changes NCLB needs but do agree about..

They all agree, for instance, that more funding is needed, and that some of the accountability provisions need to be made more flexible, especially regarding the testing of English-language learners and special education students.

That's all rather vague isn't it? Also...

Gov. Gregoire said the governors will work closely with their chief state school officers and designate one person from each state to form a coalition that will develop more specific policy goals as the debate over reauthorization continues. She said the NGA is considering convening an NCLB summit to talk about what changes should be made to the law.

I'm waiting with baited breath.
