R&D in the ESEA Blueprint

In her Inside Researach blog, Debbie Viadero raises questions about the Administration's emphasis on research in its ESEA blueprint. While evidence is one of the six cross cutting priorities in the proposal, research or evidence is not mentioned frequently in the programmatic descriptions. Hmmmmm. Should knowledge-able stakeholders be concerned about this?

Perhaps we can expect more research in future iterations. Given the administration's focus on competitive grants, it seems that research should be more important than ever.... If we're going to concentrate the wealth in districts that write the best proposals, then we're going to have an infrastructure for capturing and spreading the wealth later on.
