Sam Dillon, national education correspondent for the New York Times, talked about the Obama administration’s announcement earlier in the month that states would be allowed to apply for waivers for a key provision on math and reading proficiency. The No Child Left Behind Act has been up for re-authorization since 2007. A clip recorded on August 18, 2001, for “Newsmakers” was shown of Education Secretary Arne Duncan talking about the administration’s desire for re-authorization of NCLB. Mr. Dillon responded to telephone calls and electronic communications as he discussed topics including the political and policy “deadlock” in Congress on educational issues and the subsequent need to provide state relief; the process for waivers; the historic role of the federal government in education; and the problems that the federal role brings with it. close
