"Differentiated accountability"

Alexander Russo links to news coverage of the Margaret Spellings announcement yesterday that maybe not all AYP failures are the same. Here's some blog coverage:

Spellings went to growth pilots, waivers (or turning the other cheek) to allow tutoring before choice, and now differing judgments on failure to meet AYP after others talked about the ideas for years. I think Spellings is just channeling Adlai Stevenson, who once quipped that leadership is seeing where the crowd is heading and getting in front of it.

(Does anyone know the exact wording or source for that?)
