I could only shake my head at leadership’s pathetic, half-hearted defense of Race to the Top. As an organizing entity, the leadership was impotent. Not even one of the IEA leaders was willing to go to the microphone in the convention hall to defend their position. While a year ago, some crowed about the IEA’s inside connections to the Duncan USDE, it is now apparent that these inside connections are more a hindrance than a help.

Brother Fred is back from steamy Big Easy. But he's really steamed about IEA leadership & Race To Top.
