For a Congress that doesn't believe in big government, it's certainly drawn media attention of how involved and top-down the feds have become in shaping and enforcing education policy. With the Department of Education, Obama, and Arne Duncan steering most of the Race to the Top legislation, parents and other taxpayers are beginning to see another entity in the driver's seat: the thousands of companies that contributed to campaigns and just happen to provide education related goods and services, such as Pearson.
