Why no ed talk for 08?

Despite the efforts of some, there's virtually no talk about education among the presidential candidates on either side of the aisle. Sara Mead (guestblogging at EduWonk) says it's because of the way the primaries are set up, with Iowa and New Hampshire (both reform-resistant) playing critical roles; the Palm Beach Post says the media and the public just don't care.

The bottom line, of course, is that the education system is a political system (since 90% of it is controlled by some level of government), and if it's not an issue, we'll either see no change or, worse yet, we'll cycle back to a period of greater stability (ie, pre-NCLB). Let's hope that state-level politics picks up the slack.
