Democrats for Education Reform applauds the U.S. Department of Education for the guidance it issued today to help ensure equal educational opportunity for all students. Resource equity is a key area where we, along with many others, have asked the Obama Administration to place greater emphasis. We’re thrilled to see today’s action. But we also have concerns whether there is the requisite amount of political will to ensure the plan presented today will ultimately result in real change.
