Former SC Clerk Heads Obama Education Work

Danielle_gray Wondering who's coordinating Obama's education work? 

Danielle Gray (pictured) is the Deputy National Policy Director for the Obama campaign, who oversees Obama's education policy work. 

Based out of Chicago, she's a Harvard law school grad (03) who's on leave from Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom. 

Before that, she clerked for Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer October term 2005.  She was a member of Obama's Senate campaign staff in 2004. 

She was voted “most likely to be a Supreme Court Justice” by her HLS classmates. Duke for undergrad. 

In addition, Obama has Heather Higginbottom as National Policy Director, and scads of education advisors -- LDH, Schnur, etc.

Any other tidbits or juicy gossip, let us know. What's her favorite drink?  What's she really think of private school vouchers?

I'm hearing rumblings about Linda Darling-Hammond being in line for an Obama WH Ed Policy post. You?

Might suggest a move toward incentivising urban teachers...a la rural doctors.
