Would a Republican Congress Be Good for School Reform?

That's the question asked in this Education Next piece, which correctly points out that the new pledge from the Congressional Republicans doesn't have the word "education" anywhere in it. Or "school". Or "teacher".

Put that piece side-by-side with this one, which ponders if education reform has jumped the shark. It seems like a dumb question given the zeitgeist--how many times did you hear about Waiting for Superman this week?--but at the same time you have Michelle Rhee getting thrown out on her ear in Washington D.C.

My own personal clock had education becoming a big issue leading into the midterm elections, so that the politicos could go home and campaign on it, but maybe in 2011. Or 2012. Or, maybe, never.
