Former Bush Education Expert Gives Obama’s Education Effort A Grade Of “C+”

During the George W Bush administration, Bill Evers was an Assistant Secretary of Education For Policy and he is now a “research fellow” for the Hoover Institution. In a video interview — on — Mr. Evers says that efforts of the Obama administration seem to focus on two outcomes — a new test system and a new national curriculum.

He says, sarcastically, that the new testing system will be “touchy, feely, fuzzy …  highly experimental” and that it will be imposed on the entire nation. The new evaluation system, I guess, will include portfolios and projects.

Mr. Evers claims that the Obama administration stopped some free market reforms started by the Bush administration.  But I was surprised that Evers doesn’t dismiss the Obama approach entirely, but instead grades it as a “C+”.
