Romney Picks Education Advisers for CampaignMay 23, 2012
Boston Globe – Likely Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has assembled his team to examine and shape his education proposals for the coming election. The most notable name on his team is Rod Paige, former Education Secretary under George W. Bush and one of the architects of No Child Left Behind. Mr. Paige is joined by several other members of the Bush administration, including Nina Rees, Christina Culver and Tom Luna. Advisors also include college professors and those who worked in the private education sector. While education has been a relatively absent issue from Mr. Romney’s campaign so far, it is thought his policies will include some of reforms he enacted while governor of Massachusetts, including support for charter schools and state requirements for high-school graduation. He has been a vocal critic of federal intervention in education. For the complete list of advisers, read Mitt Romney Announces Education Policy Team.
