Oh great. The same minds that gave us Race to the Top are now being entrusted with even bigger challenges

What's your reward for saddling Delaware schools with Race to the Top?

How about the cabinet-level position atop the Department of Children, Youth, and Their Families, where you have even greater scope to bring bad policy-making skills into play where they really count?

From the Governor's press release (via Delawareliberal):
Jennifer Ranji served as Educational Policy Advisor in the Office of Governor Markell from September 2009 to July 2012.  She was the lead staff person on Race to the Top and Early Childhood Race to the Top initiatives and played a leading role in developing the Governor’s education policy agenda...
Probably the next thing we will see is data coaches to train foster parents on how better to manage their children.

Although on record as being no a fan of the currently run RTTT, I do know Jen Ranji and think she is the type who will not let trappings of past associations, get in the way of solving future crises....

So, I'm not so quick to jump to the association that RTTT is going to determine our future....

I know from myself, and from most people I follow, that few of us fully carry the trappings from one position to another...
