New Year, New Decade, New Opportunities?

The National Journal recently put out the call to education experts around the country, “What should the education priorities be for 2010?”  There are lots of interesting ideas here, the reauthorization of ESEA, new school models, refining standards and assessment, keeping up reforms, etc.  While Delaware’s focus may already be on another tight budget year, there are also opportunities to make education in the First State better in 2010 then ever before.  With the legislative session opening in Dover today, what are the big education policies you would like to see tackled this year?

On our list:  Finding a solution to fix low performing schools, moving towards an educator career path that rewards effectiveness, and funding flexibility for schools and districts to make the right decisions for kids.
