First, I'm thrilled to be affiliated with TBFI and have the chance to contribute to Flypaper.???? Thanks Checker, Mike, Eric, and team.???? It's been great.
Like many others, I'm waiting for ED to release its guidance on the stimulus.???? It's late already, but that's no surprise.???? One big lesson I learned during my time at ED is that official documents like this take forever to get out.???? There are countless drafts, an internal clearance process, OMB input, White House/DPC input, and on and on and on.???? Add to this that lots of senior positions at ED are still unfilled (and many of the folks in place are new to DC), and you can see that this may take a while???????
Terry Ryan has already written about the charters challenges out in Ohio, but the proposal is even worse than I expected????????less funding, more reporting, messing with facilities, and banning for-profits.???? Take a look if you're interested in charter stuff.???? And incidentally, didn't somebody recently write about being optimistic about the future of charters????? Egad.
Be sure to check out Mike's thorough treatment of the Duncan-voucher news.???? Two quick...
