"We’re encouraged by the reforms put forth by the president, particularly his emphasis on common high expectations for all students, improving teacher effectiveness, and turning around low-performing schools. We’re also heartened by the president’s proposed education funding increases since they tie additional dollars to results. We look forward to working with the president and the Congress to move forward on these and other reforms."

Cynthia Brown is the Vice President for Education Policy at American Progress and is available for comment on the State of the Union address this evening. To speak with Cynthia Brown, please contact Suzi Emmerling at or 202-344-0404.
