Obama's education pick

It is really no surprise that President-elect Barack Obama would pick the schools chief from his hometown, Arne Davis, to be education secretary in his administration. Obama would've certainly come to know Davis during his time heading the failed Chicago Annenberg Challenge -- a fact that seems absent from most of today's news reporting.

(You can find an earlier report from Education Week -- a subscription publication -- at this pro-Obama site. Scroll past the pro-Bill Ayers commentary for the actual article.)

The thing that no one in the media seems to be asking about this selection is: If Davis is the right guy to direct this nation's education policy, then why weren't the schools he was until recently running good enough for Obama's kids?
