Three must-read posts on education policy

As election season approaches, Craig Westover makes it perfectly clear why federal education policy matters: the less federal education policy, the better.

It's tough to be heard over the drumbeat of the education establishment (teacher unions, government bureaucrats, nonprofits) that robotically calls for more, more, more money and more government ("no unfunded mandates"), but Westover hits the nail on the head (to use his metaphor) with these three posts.
