Missing out of the action, still

I'm swamped by work, so I'm afraid I'm going to be missing the party today on A Broader, Bolder Approach to Education, the collaborative statement on education policy headed up by the Education Policy Institute. Eduwonkette praises the statement. Richard Lee Colvin cautiously praises the emphasis on early childhood education while noting that it is likely to be controversial. Sara Mead's view is highly mixed. Eduwonk and Mike Petrilli are outright cynical.

I'm going to be late in responding to this (and other major stories such as Ed Week's grad-rate release last week). I'd give my brief gloss on the topic, but I've already written a book on accountability, and I'm too exhausted right now for pithy comments.
