Nicholas Kristof writes a compelling op-ed in the NY Times regarding education.  He states that Obama and his inner circle plan to put education on the back burner…to focus on the economy and health care.  I understand the strategy, but on this Kristof and I are of one mind.

There is no greater civil right than a good education.  There is no better stimulus for an economy than an educated middle class.  My charity will be focused on education as its primary goal, for example.

I would urge Democrats, and Mr. Obama in particular, to reconsider making education the central focus of his administration.  I think it can be at the core of an American resurgence.  And frankly, without renewed focus on education, no American economy is going that far forward.
