This is a guide to the educational priorities and change to expect from the Obama administration. Although the Obama's goals for education have been articulated in his speeches and on his website, what's missing is a picture of what these proposals mean in practice. This guide provides the articles, stories, and commentary to clarify Obama's priorities for education. The plan itself is comprehensive and covers preschool, K-12, and college-level education. Among its recommendations: expand early education, improve teacher quality, support school innovation, make math and science national priorities, address the dropout crisis, and improve college access and affordability. This title is compiled by "Education Week" - education's newspaper of record. It offers information and opinion on Obama's key educational priorities. It provides a listing of the President's recommendations for education from pre-school to college level. It includes advice for the President from key education leaders. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
