  • The No Child Left Behind Act dominated the first debate between representatives of the two presumptive presidential party nominees, Sen. John McCain and Sen. Barack Obama.
  • Rhode Island has re-opened the door to more public school choice and competition, as a moratorium on the creation of new charter schools was allowed to expire.
  • Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland's veto of a special-needs scholarship bill last year isn't stopping supporters from making another attempt to provide scholarships for disabled students.
  • New Orleans' new $10 million needs-based voucher program may bring back some families who fled the city when Hurricane Katrina arrived three years ago.

Also in this issue: the DC Opportunity Scholarship Program, Arizona's voucher programs, teacher performance pay, charter schools, No Child Left Behind, a Chicago scholarship program, preparing teachers for math, Milwaukee's voucher program, and more.
