Watch -- Don't Read -- Your Education News

Kudos to the smart folks at the Center On American Progress for uploading this CNN clip about Leaders and Laggards, the latest report card out from the Center On American Progress and the US Chamber, to YouTube.

You can see more of their uploads here. This one features John Podesta, who heads the center, and I got the clip from Edutopia (Leaders & Laggards: New Education Report Grades Are Grim).

Edutopia online also has a little piece that I did on Barbara Boxer's after-school efforts and the growth of federal interest in afterschool programs (After School with Barbara Boxer). Question is, can she keep it up, and avoid making afterschool the new flavor of the week (like class size reducation or school modernization before)?
