Another New Deal 2.0 essay by Prof. Harvey Kaye, Social Change and Development, is getting national visibility. This piece, titled “Like FDR, Obama Could Become Teacher-in-Chief,” offers a little free and unsolicited advice to the current president in advance of his State of the Union address. Obama, Kaye writes, should go on the offensive. The essay was posted in the Huffington Post; click here.
