Divisions with Obama’s ed camp? You alert readers might recall that two weeks ago we attended a campaign debate between two campaign ed advisors that was memorialized in this David Hoff blog entry. Well, last week Mike Petrilli of the Fordham Foundation gave further evidence in Gadfly about the apparent divisions that seem to have emerged in the Obama camp. This beckons back to last June’s controversies surrounding two Democrat-leaning reform initiatives that David Brooks highlighted his opinion piece in the New York Times. Hmmm…confusing, yes? In chatting with an Obama education advisor last night, we heard a familiar refrain: Senator Obama is the final word and his education plan is very clear about where he stands.
