Wayne Au with Rethinking Schools, who some of you will have the pleasure of meeting at the forum on October 5th, sent me a link to Bye, Bye Duncan? that was in the Chronicle for Higher Education.

What was interesting to me about this article is that this morning when listening to political analysis on the radio about what the Obama administration has achieved in the last two years,  I noticed that there was not any mention made about his education initiative, Race to the Top. I shrugged it off thinking that it just hadn’t been written into the script. It was an oversight.

But maybe not.

Check out this article and see what you think.

I would love to read your thoughts.
