This infographic from Vox shows that it's out with a whimper rather than a bang when it comes to focusing national attention on education, even if you combine the "schools" column with the "education" column.

There is perhaps no field in which President Obama has been a greater disappointment than education -- except perhaps with respect to the Constitution, since this chief executive has not faithfully executed laws. In 2009 many of us were eagerly anticipating a new era of successful reform for our schools and our country; in 2012 we resorted to reelecting him for lack of a better alternative; in 2016 we can't wait for his disastrous administration of the U.S. Department of Education to be terminated, as families across the country opt out of the test-obsessed vision of state schooling he has unwittingly abetted -- the best informed reluctantly see no alternative better than private schooling, like that the Obama and Duncan children are receiving, for their own children, at least in the near term.
