EDINO8: Gates-Funded Group Hands Baton To Sharpton, Klein

Cursive_crop I knew that EDIN08's Marc Lampkin was doing some work with the Education Equity folks but I didn't put two and two together until I got this "goodbye" email from EDIN08 (aka Strong American Schools) in which the handoff is explicit, describing EEP as "picking up the mission that ED in '08 started-tirelessly advocating on behalf of students falling behind on education and the promise of the American dream." 

Interesting that a Gates-funded effort that was hindered by its desire to be so broad and noncontroversial (staying away from NCLB reauthorization) would morph into a effort that is so much more specific and comfortable taking sides.
