Ed Trust's Amy Wilkins Is Back...Can She Do It Again?

amy_wilkins2.jpgFor a time, there didn't seem to be anyone who got more stuff into more legislation than the Ed Trust's Amy Wilkins, who was notoriously good at doing the Vulcan mind-meld with Congressional staff (including me) and powerful lawmakers (like Miller). It was crazy, as was the amount of positive press that the Trust got during those days. K12, higher ed, they were everywhere.

Then Wilkins went off to do a few other things -- early childhood, charter school cap stuff, etc., and the Trust kept pushing along but not, it seemed to me, quite as powerfully as before.

But now she's back, according to the Ed Trust press release this week. Now titled Vice President for Government Affairs and Communications, she likes the Aspen Institute's highly qualified effective teacher idea. Will Wilkins and the Trust rise again to influence NCLB 2 like last time around? It's not yet clear. But I wouldn't bet against it.
