...Barely a Key Issue
Our friends at the Campaign k-12 blog write about the discouraging lack of focus on education in the campaign. We think that while education is not a pivotal issue in this election it will generate a lot of attention in the first 100 days of the new administration. There will be big time political pressure to address funding issues when the FY 2010 appropriations kicks off in March of 2009...and you can bet that the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act will be a major focus in Congress right away.
