Excited about the future of education policy? You’re not alone. The campaign funded by education philanthropists Eli and Edythe Broad and Bill and Melinda Gates, “ED in '08,” launched last week with print and radio ads in select cities. “ED in '08” is a nonpartisan public awareness and action campaign that aims to ensure “the nation engages in a rigorous debate and to make education a top priority in the 2008 presidential election.” It’s inspiring to see the future of our children’s education weighing in as a serious issue so early in the campaign season.
Here at NAESP, we have also been talking about the future of education leadership with Vision 2021, a dialogue on what principals need to do today to prepare for tomorrow. Stay tuned for opportunities to exchange ideas about NAESP’s vision for the future.
