There's a thought-provoking Tribune editorial out arguing that money without reform doesn't do much good, and -- more controversially -- that reform can and should still be done without a big influx of cash (Is there will to help schools?). The tag line? "Don't give up on education. The ideas are there, with or without a lot of cash." Seems like they're pretty much giving up on the big money and trying to get a few key things done instead. Pragmatic, sure, but it creates a scramble. What about universal preschool, for example?
