Find some of Obama's education policy statements

Researching Barack Obama's education positions, I came across a website that lists some of his education policy statements that was helpful, if somewhat light on specifics.

Some of the statements go back as far as 1998. Others are as recent as 2007 and all are sourced. Among the issues the page covers:

--Teacher hiring incentives

--Teacher pay

--The problems of the education status quo

--Teacher accountability

--Life-long learning

--School funding

--The achievement gap

--Attracting teachers to high need areas

--Charter schools and private investment in schools

--College affordability

(This post can also be found at my education blog, Get on the Bus.)
