The president is fond of this.. We are beyond elementary and high school. The big education news tonight was free community college.

High graduation rates were also touted.  Conspicuously absent was any mention of Common Core, curriculum changes, or privatizing education through increased charters.  What a difference 356 days make.

It is safe to say that the president has dumped those programs. Delaware Department of Education needs to do the same.  Doubling down on broken promises only makes things worse.

Here are issues not mentioned.

  • Increased Funding for Early Childhood Education.
  • Federal Government’s Role in Standardized Testing
  • Common Core
  • Fixing No Child Left Behind

it appears this k-12 educational sailing ship has run aground for the Obama Administration, in its Race To The Top..
