Rep. Miller Congratulates New Members Of Education & Workforce Committee
Ohanian Comment: Those of you who are constituents of these new members of the House Education and the Workforce Committee might do well to inform them of your feelings about NCLB. We of the Educator Roundtable plan to ask you to do a whole lot more than write polite letters to members of Congress, but a polite letter is a place to start. Put them on notice that you are watching.
