Once again living up to its “post-partisan” claims, the New America Foundation has snagged itself another real, live Republican education guy to help Michael Dannenberg, Sara Mead, and all the rest in the education shop. (Justin King moved over to another part of the foundation.) The new guy’s name is Jason Delisle, and he’s a former Senate budget committee guy for Judd Gregg (R-NH) and before that an education LA for Tom Petri (R-WI). He’s going to be research director. Far as I know, that makes New America the only “nonpartisan” think tank / advocacy outfit to have both D and R folks on education staff, though of course there are always rumors swirling around about Petrilli. Cool glasses, man. Welcome.
