    This is all good and well but who is A+?

    Who is Excellent Schools now?

    Who the public face for these organizations/initiatives? Either they are a real live group or not. (The Our Schools Coalition has this same problem but we know that the Alliance runs that one. And yes, I do have the e-mails to prove that claim.)

    There is no one to call or write to, just a form and, seemingly, a “we’ll get back to you.”

    You can have supporters all you want but there is just a list of groups (not people) for Excellent Schools Now.

    When it’s that vague and hands off, you have to wonder what the real purpose of this organization is.
