“They’d Rather FIght Everything …”

“I think that was the great tragedy of [the No Child Left Behind Act], the complete lack of real input the education establishment had, and it goes a long way to explaining the problems with the law.  That tragedy continues today with teacher evaluations. But the fact that they didn’t have a seat at the table was because they’d decided they’d rather fight everything than compromise.”
– Patrick J. McGuinn, associate professor of political science at Drew University, in Education Week’s Relationship Between Advocacy Groups, Unions Uneasy, by Stephen Sawchuk
