Mittens announced his education advisory panel yesterday.
You will find no surprises on it.
It is made up of the usual suspects. Corporate reformers, Hoover institute academics that wouldn’t recognize a child if she were pulling on their pant leg and Bush DOE retreads.
He needn’t have bothered.
If the voters were to actually elect the guy, he might just as well keep the current DOE in place.
From the Obama campaign there is no talk of schools, teachers or education.
We only have the Duncan policies to go on.
There will be no education plank in the Democratic Party platform.
There is no need, I suppose. We have the past four years to go on.
So, who speaks for us?
