Now that Betsy DeVos has officially taken over as head of the DOE, focus in the blogosphere turns to the ramifications. Tara Garcia Mathewson paints a relative rosy picture for innovative charter school models over at Education Dive: "Whether the sector as a whole has lived up to its promise of innovation is questionable, but there are certainly schools worth learning from and thosethat have doubled down on a vision of improving public education as a whole." Joshua Kim at Inside Higher Ed pens a wishlist that cover bothe k-12 and post secondary institutions: " [The DOE’s] role in helping to create the conditions for knowledge sharing, collaborations, and partnerships across the postsecondary edtech ecosystem is an effort that I hope continues during your tenure as secretary." And Edger Alvarez at Endagadget is a bit more gloomy when it comes to issues of STEM: "DeVos could create an environment where accepted scientific theories such as evolution could be taught alongside faith-based pseudoscience such as intelligent design." Buckle in! —Kevin Hogan, Content Director
