Re: [xmca] Obama's Learn Act

Hi Karen, 
Thanks for the post. I respect, hear, and understand where you are coming from...which is exactly why I would encourage you to thoroughly read the LEARN Act and all about Duncan's Race to the Top program. 

You will find these "initiatives" do nothing to move us away from NCLB. While our young and busy president has done an exemplary job of reviewing and evaluating other challenges before him, he needs engage in the same careful, measured process with education. Instead, he has appointed a non-educator for Secretary of Education who relies on the consul of Rev. Al Sharpton and Newt Gingrich. Again, at issue is the definition of learning, language, and childhood.

Best wishes,
