Administration, GOP Governors Generally "Getting Along" On Education Reform

In an article published in some form by more than 100 news sources, the AP (3/10, Hefling) reported that President Obama "and many Republican governors" are tending to get along on the issue of "improving America's schools." Following the President's recent meeting with the nation's governors, "Louisiana GOP Gov. Bobby Jindal publicly praised the Administration's efforts on education, and Virginia Republican Gov. Bob McDonnell said there was a lot of room for 'common agreement' on fixing schools." Meanwhile, "GOP Gov. Mitch Daniels freely credits Obama and Education Secretary Arne Duncan for helping to pave the way for a 'tectonic' shift in education, including comprehensive law changes passed in his home state of Indiana last year that include the rigorous use of teacher evaluations and one of the nation's most expansive uses of vouchers to help parents send children to private schools."
