February 2014 Education Insider: State of the Union Address

In this Education Insider edition, we asked Insiders to respond to President Obama’s State of the Union remarks, and the White House’s corresponding State of the Union Fact Sheet.

We asked Insiders about each education issue that the President mentioned. For those that would require Congressional action, we asked them to rank the likelihood of passage, ranging from 1 as “Not happening – DOA” to 5 as “Definitely – It’s in the Bank.”

For those programs that are already underway or that the President plans to implement through executive action, we asked Insiders to select an A‐F grade, reflecting their opinion on whether the proposal is a good idea.
