There's also shout-outs to KIPP, Schnur, Kopp, and Rhee -- and a

hopeful line about how unions and management have "worked together to

bring new approaches and ideas into our classrooms." Click here for the full text. Meanwhile, the Obama team named LDH as education policy team leader earlier today.

In this pic, Obama looks like he doesn't like either of his choices. In fact, he looks like he's gonna pull the car over if we don't cut it out soon.
