What Obama's Candidacy Means For Education

Illinois Senator Barack Obama's entry into the 2008 Presidential campaign has lots of potential implications for education, including most obviously making CT Senator Chris Dodd even more of a long shot than he already was, and, by extension, making national standards, Dodd's current education issue, even more of a nonstarter.

But that's not all. Obama is an interesting, hard to read candidate on education issues, and is not only pro-charter but also -- maybe -- open to vouchers. (Hey, the guy smokes, too, didn't you know?).

Here are some recent posts about Obama and his education agenda from over the past few months:
