Not Much New News In Times Obama Article
There's not much new news in this NYT piece on Obama's education DNA (If Elected) beyond (a) a great Obama education timeline (below), (b) news that Obama and early childhood economist James Heckman (think Swamp Nurse) live near each other, and what sounds like better documentation of the Obama-Ayers overlap working on the Chicago Annenberg Challenge (Ayers developed the plan, Obama served as board chair). No mention of Obama's role in the local control debate which I continue believe is the most substantive thing Obama has done on education. No new information on what specifically Obama did to influence the Annenberg Challenge -- where his fingerprints are, if anywhere. No real discussion of his interest in the residency-based teacher prep model that some Chicago and Boston schools use. Oh well.
