Hmmm, I guess my earlier note with the full link didn't get through -- I
included the same quote of that section that you gave.
Anyhow, here's the link to the full proposed Senate bill as the draft now
stands (sponsored by Patti Murray, Al Franken, and Sherrod Brown.

Subject: RE: [xmca] Obama's Learn Act
Hi Peg and others:
Here is the specific language under section 9, e,1,c of the LEARN Act:
SEC. 9. SUBGRANTS TO ELIGIBLE ENTITIES IN SUPPORT OF BIRTH THROUGH
KINDERGARTEN ENTRY LITERACY.
(e) LOCAL USES OF FUNDS.-
(1) IN GENERAL.-An eligible entity that receives a subgrant under this
section shall use the subgrant funds consistent with the plan proposed in
subsection (c) to carry out the following activities:
(C) SCREENING ASSESSMENTS AND MEASURES.-Acquiring, providing training for,
and implementing screening assessments or other appropriate measures to
determine whether children from birth through kindergarten entry are
developing appropriate early language and literacy skills.
The question is, "WHO will determine what is appropriate and HOW will they
assess it?" This goes to the heart of Vygotsky's work.
