A new group has come about called the Community Forums Network. They have a survey going until October 28th to ask about spending on K-12 education. They have rather an interesting way to reward you - you get to select a nonprofit organization to receive points towards earning a grant.
I think this could be an interesting start to better public engagement and consensus building so it's worth a look at.
Hey, it's just two weeks until election day. How are you feeling about this election season - too long, too short?
I note that both President Obama and Mr. Romney diverged off the foreign policy topic last night and talked education for a bit. Mr. Romney right away went for the tired "teachers union" point, vaguely mentioned vouchers (without saying the word) and tried to take credit for success in Mass. that happened before he was Governor.
President Obama was not all that much better but he talked about trying to hire more math/science teachers AND gave Romney a slam on class size. Apparently, Romney, like Bill Gates, thinks class size doesn't matter.
What's on your mind?
