The top teachers’ unions are already pushing back against President Obama’s proposed changes to “No Child Left Behind” – which gets sent to Capitol Hill today.  American Federation of Teacher’s President Randi Weingarten says, “this blueprint places 100 percent of the responsibility on teachers and gives them zero percent of the authority."

 

I asked Education Secretary Arne Duncan about that this morning on ‘GMA’.  He wasn’t buying it:  “there will be shared responsibility not just with teachers but principles, school systems…and even states – everyone is gonna be responsible for driving better results.”
