Obama describes the domestic and global gaps so well… but then goes on to emphasize the policies and structures that caused the problems as the vehicles that should be used for closing the gaps??  When will Obama get that the current system cannot be improved, only replaced?  How about the demand of students/parents – not DC or State-level bureaucrats – driving the allocation of funds (based on performance data that will continue to become more detailed and more accessible)??
