Barack Obama's campaign proposals stood out for their breadth, detail, and ambitious goals. From the beginning, he made clear that investment in education was key to our future economic prosperity. His comprehensive plan called for expanding early education opportunities for all children, improving teacher quality, supporting school innovation, and putting a college education within reach of many more students.Elected on a platform of hope and change, President Obama inherits a world of problems-notably, an economy in crisis-which will clearly affect the pace and scale of reform. This book provides background on key points in President Obama's education plan: articles on key educational issues, stories of innovative practice, commentaries on controversial topics, and advice from key educational leaders. These will provide valuable insights on the complex issues at hand as Obama's proposals are debated, legislated, and implemented in the years to come.
