Richardson Ed Plan Coming Soon

Gov. Bill Richardson has said he will unveil his education plan today at a Manchester, N.H., high school. According to reports, the plan will include a move to give college students free tuition in exchange for public service.
The Democratic presidential candidate said students could earn two years of college tuition for every year of serving in organizations like the Peace Corp or Teach for America. For more about the preliminaries, see this AP story.
No other details about the plan were released, though Richardson has already said that NCLB should be scrapped. So far, he hasn't mentioned an alternative. Stay tuned.
