New Jersey’s Gov. Chris Christie is providing the kind of education-reform leadership badly needed in Kentucky.
Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear talks, creates task forces to appear engaged on the issue and talks some more. But Gov. Christie acts by pursuing an aggressive agenda that includes “expanding school choice options for students and overhauling teacher tenure, compensation, and pensions.”
He is putting the interests of New Jersey’s kids ahead of the self-aggrandizing teachers unions and educrats in the schools of education who have yet to move from lah-lah land into the realm of reality.
I wonder when Kentucky’s governor and education officials charged with reforming the commonwealth’s education system might also be making that move.
