A "Broader, Bolder Approach" to Public Education

Pedro Noguera from the Huffington Post reports on a new and diversely supported initiative to challenge No Child Left Behind and supplant its broadly criticized demands with a "Broader, Bolder Approach" to public education. Thanks to Will Richardson's tweets :) for this one.

Noguera begins,

A new task force of national policy experts with diverse religious and political affiliations, in public policy fields including education, social welfare, health, housing, and civil rights today launched a campaign calling for a "Broader, Bolder Approach to Education" to break a decades-long cycle of reform efforts that promised much and have achieved far too little.
