Obama's views on US higher ed

A compilation of his views, expressed through speeches and position papers, is here.

I realize that campaign rhetoric could be vastly different from actual policies that eventually get implemented. Also, it's too early to pay attention to details. For the moment, I just want to park this link here, so that I can come back to it later.

    Chronicle has a piece,

    According to the Chronicle of Higher Education, this administration will mark the first time that the P, VP and their spouses have worked in higher education and, for a change, the president is an authority on the constitution.

    Thanks, Giri, for that link. I too found that information mentioned on another blog. As it turns out, that blog post too cited the article that you linked to. Thanks.

    I found this recent presidential address by AAAS president - David Baltimore quite interesting.
    There are many references to Indian science,education and his views on its strengths, problems and possible ideas for improvement.
    I wonder what would the response of Indian educationist be to his views on Indian science/education
