A Man with a Flashlight

Ed in ’08

Bill Gates and Eli Broad are putting $60 million into the 2008 election.

Not in support of a candidate, but of an issue: education. And not in support of a specific education policy. Simply to put pressure on candidates to propose solutions to our national crisis. Melinda Gates said on NPR today that our goal should be a 100% high school graduation rate.

Good for them. It’s a shame that this is necessary, but necessary it is.
