Rep. Roy Blunt, R-Missouri, was in Joplin on Dec. 26 to talk about changes to the IRS tax code that would affect early filers. While he was here, he talked about the ongoing efforts to reauthorize the No Child Left Behind Act. His words: "It's not going very well. There is tremendous disagreement on both sides."

Blunt, who originally voted in favor of the act about five years ago, has become a vocal critic of the act. He has been in conversation with area superintendents and worked for a system that makes states the highest education authorities. Blunt said that Rep. George Miller, D-Calif., new chairman of the committee on education and labor, would have a bill to the House by Nov. 16, but Blunt hasn't seen it.
