    it is from The Brown Center on Education of Brookings. Heartland was where the author found a good online copy.

    As far as sources go, I tend to look at its champions and critics alike. The champions here are the conservative Fordham Institute and the Obama Administration. Great President, but education policy has been misguided, at best. So in my opinion that's two strikes against their champions. Add the Gates Foundation and that's strike three for champions.

    As far as opponents go, Diane Ravitch was critical of this plan to implement without pilot, and I agree with her assessment, and respect her opinion over anyone at the Department of Education.

    If you have your reasons for appreciating the policy you should state those, rather than try to muddy the waters with the daily kos version of reductio ad Hitlerum (associating a position with a group that is reviled, like the Nazis, or in this case, the tea party).

    Run for office. It's fun!
