Despite these challenges, the president has a chance to hit the reset button when it comes to education reform. He can insist on at least some bipartisanship, place the unions in their proper role, and ratchet back his rhetoric about the power of Washington in fixing all that ails our schools.

Doing so would represent the kind of transformative change many Americans sought when they voted for Obama;  yet also a departure from his behavior thus far in his first term as president.
