Video: "Untested...Competitions" Displacing Established Programs

Sen. Jack Reed had some tough questions for Secretary Duncan at yesterday's appropriations hearing, as reported in HuffED, but his concern apparently wasn't focused on the Promise Neighborhoods in particular but rather "untested, large-scaled competitive grant programs" pushing out established line-item programs like school libraries:  

"I’m concerned that the overarching strategy at the Department has been to focus almost exclusively on these untested, large-scaled competitive grant programs at the expense of some proven research-based programs that have a track record of success."  

PS:  Who's that sitting just off Duncan's left elbow, opposite Carmel Martin?
