ABSTRACT
The article discusses how educational legislation approved by the U.S. House of Representatives conflicts with educational policies of the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama. The legislation is intended to prevent teacher layoffs through funds redirected from the Race to the Top grant program as well as the Teacher Incentive Fund and a fund for the establishment of charter schools. Obama has threatened to veto the legislation if alternate sources of funding are used.
