NWP funding is safe (for now)! Coburn Amendment defeated!

Many thanks to the senators who voted against this amendment, which would have denied funding to NWP, RIF, Teach for America, Reach Out and Read, the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, and other national education programs. Senator Dorgan's aide told Nancy yesterday that the Senator was voting against it because of his support for the National Writing Project. Thank you, Senator Dorgan!

Thanks also to Senators Conrad, Franken and Klobuchar as well!!!
