Ted Purinton, Assistant Professor, National College of Education
On Obama's education proposals: "What I didn't really get a sense of from this speech, nor have I received that message from the other speeches of Arne Duncan and Obama on education is the kinds of support that teachers should be getting, the issues of funding for schools that are out of balance and increasingly out of balance between high-wealth and low-wealth districts. I'm worried that some of these messages will perpetuate themselves as the only option for fixing our schools."
