"During a speech Monday at an education forum in Chicago, U.S. Senator
Barack Obama (D-IL) said that he will introduce legislation to create
20 Innovation Districts that would be given more resources to try
substantial new reforms in teaching to help better prepare American
students to compete in a 21st century economy. Obama said the
Innovation Districts will be chosen from school districts around the
country based on their plans to increase student achievement and place
highly qualified teachers in their classrooms."
No details yet, but like I've said before Barak isn't going to be the traditional liberal lots of folks want him to be on education -- for better or worse. Pro-charters, "open minded" on vouchers....
