NYT Goes Deeper on Education Secretary Search

Sam Dillon’s New York Times piece (12/14/08) is much better than most of the coverage of President-elect Barack Obama’s search for an Education secretary nominee. It’s even got some on-target media criticism: Editorials and opinion articles in the New York Times, the Washington Post and the Los Angeles Times have described the debate as pitting education reformers against those representing the educational establishment or the status quo. But who the reformers are depends on who is talking.
