Obama's Real Education Funding Priorities

Want to know what education programs Obama really cares about?  Check out his education earmark requests -- priorities that he gives to Senate leaders hoping they'll get funded.  You usually never see these things, but Obama released his today under pressure from Clinton and McCain and the press. 

There's a $1M request for the Urban Teaching and Leadership Center at UIC. Two point five mil for ISU's Chicago Teacher Education Pipeline Programs and Partnerships Program.  Another two mil for the Reading Initiative. (What, no love for math and science?)  Some money for Christo Rey.  Nothing for AUSL -- but this is from FY06 so maybe there's something more recent.
