Education issues are nowheresville, writes New America’s Sara Mead (here). And that is unlikely to change. But at least Edwards’ plan doesn’t eviscerate NCLB, says Mead. And at least he has one. Most of the others -- except Dodd -- don’t have any real K-12 education proposal (beyond bashing the current law). And they probably won’t show up with one anytime soon, despite past promises. Why get into that mess when college costs and universal preschool are so much more fun -- and only 1 percent of Americans rank education as their top priority?
