Early Childhood meets Capitol Hill

Last week, I traveled to Washington, DC, along with 16 other advocates for early childhood education from North Carolina. We attended a public policy forum, sponsored by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). “NAEYC's mission is to serve and act on the behalf of the needs, rights, and well-being of all young children with primary focus on the provision of educational and developmental services and resources.”

We spent a day in intensive sessions, learning all we could about specific issues and concerns affecting early childhood at a federal level. What are what are those issues? Find out below the fold.

Brad Miller on Margaret Spellings: Blast from the past

BlueNC has been around long enough to have witnessed plenty of political shenanigans. The post below, written by then Congressman Brad Miller in July, 2006, points out a pattern of deception on the part of Margaret Spellings that we cannot lose sight of. As you may know, Spellings is under consideration to be the president of UNC. Her history of obfuscation will no doubt serve her well.
