SOTU: Education

If Edspresso is correct these points are going to rock the education blob.

  1. As in the past, he will call for a competitive grants bill that will allow school districts or nonprofits to create private school choice programs.
  2. As we have been urging, he will propose private school options for kids in schools that have been failing for five or more years. In an interesting twist, such "restructuring" schools also would be freed from the obligations of their union contracts, much like private firms that are in bankruptcy.
  3. For the 20 percent of Title I funds that are supposed to be used for supplemental services, a "use it or lose it" requirement to encourage the provision of services will be suggested.
Bring it on!
