A guide to the educational priorities and change to expect from the Obama administration
Although the Obama's goals for education have been articulated in his speeches and on his website, what's missing is a picture of what these proposals mean in practice.

Among its recommendations: expand early education, improve teacher quality, support school innovation, make math and science national priorities, address the dropout crisis, and improve college access and affordability.
