Obama, GOP governors share many views on education
President Obama, Republican governors find common ground on ways to improve schools
By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ' When it comes to education, President Barack Obama and many Republicans are finding common ground.

GOP governors are pushing some of the most aggressive changes in education policy today. Many credit Obama with helping to pave the way.

The areas where they tend to agree include creating teacher evaluation systems with consequences, merit pay for teachers, holding schools more accountable for student learning, and the use of charter schools that use public dollars but are run by an independent third party.



They tend to disagree on the use of taxpayer funded vouchers parents can use to help send their kids to private schools. The administration opposes them, but many governors say parents need more choices.

The administration also opposes rollbacks to collective bargaining rights for teachers that some governors support.
