Awkward...And Off Message

Maybe this Kennedy-Spellings editorial was put into action long ago, but having it come out just now seems downright awkward. Spellings is just coming off her rough appearance in front of the House committee, and is presumably going to have do another round of the same in front of Kennedy. Not to mention that the topic -- dropout prevention -- seems wildly off message. What a 90s way to generate interest in school reform. It's all about STEM, now, baby! Those Gates folks must have put them up to it.
