No love for education

There is not a lot of love coming from the house education committee for the governors k-12 proposals. Most people are saying he is not offering a lot firm details on what the long term strings could be if we buy in. The words "Trust us" seems to be what most people are getting from the governors staff.

Does he know who he is talking to?

Not a lot of trust running rampant around here in the capitol.

    You should have been listening to Arne Duncan then.

    Nationwide standards, nationwide curriculum. It will be NCLB on a whole new level. Teachers just think they are miserable now.

    But the academics won't be any better. This system doesn't work. The union is as much as confessing it when they won't be evaluated on student academic performance. I'm really not sure what else the paying customers (taxpayers) should accept as being worth 65% of their evaluation. This "free" education system does not exist to provide union dues, it exists to educate students. If they aren't being educated, why should the public continue to pay?

    Maybe you could get a Nebraska opt-out deal where you get all the money but don't have to do anything for it. I mean, Gov. Bredesen is a Democrat, so what's the problem?
