Education Think Tanks & The 2008 Campaign:
All Dressed Up & Nowhere To Go?

Over at TQATE, Sara calls my analysis of the Gates / Broad thing overly long and way off base, but ducks (at length) the issue of whether she thinks ED In '08 is going to work or not. Ditto for Eduwonk, who's maintained an uncharacteristic radio silence on this one for over a week now. There's a good reason for this, of course. Only a crazy person would criticize an initiative funded by philanthropists as deep-pocketed as Gate$ and Broad.

Plus which, acknowledging that education isn't likely to be a big issue in 2008 risks leaving the Ed Sector and other education think tanks that aren't getting involved in the nitty gritty of NCLB reauthorization all dressed up with not much of anywhere to go.
