As race heats up, education simmers down

I wish I could report Ted Kennedy was endorsing Barack Obama after a long talk about education policy. But Kennedy, a key ed policy player in Congress, has not mentioned education in any of his quotes about Obama.

In fact, as Obama has emerged as a top candidate and the primaries have heated up, there isn't much talk at all about education. Since Iowa, where schools at least were coming up in conversation, education has fallen off the radar while the economy has exploded as a top concern.

Even when Obama sits for an interview he is sticking with the general themes of his education platform.

The post also appear on my education blog, Get on the Bus.
