A few more takes on the President’s education speech yesterday. At NPR, Diane Rehm had a few guests on to discuss it including DPC head Melody Barnes, CCCR’s Diane Piche, NEA’s Lily Eskelson, and AEI’s Rick Hess. Over at Politico it’s being debated. My take – broader than what is below – here. I don’t share the concern that there are not federal policy hooks for these ideas, there are. My concern is how these ideas get from the speech to the goal line intact.
Update: At Slate Bruce Reed goes deep: “Obama showed a path out of gridlock that could work as well in solving other entrenched problems.”
