Republican Noem and Democrat Polis may not agree on much, but they are solid in their support of more innovation and opportunity […] Read more »

MAYBE WE NEED ANOTHER 1989.  The tributes to President George H.W. Bush continue, and many of us have reminded and been reminded that perhaps his biggest contribution to education was getting all the governors together so they could all be winners in the fight against bad education.  It wasn’t all selfless of course – Dems were trying […] Read more »

(Washington, DC. November 7, 2018) The results of the 2018 election cycle will be deeply reviewed and analyzed for days, months and years to come, but the initial results among the states demonstrate that education opportunity is a winning issue.  Candidates that embrace policies that empower parents, provide more flexibility for schools and teachers, and foster innovation […] Read more »

FAILING AMERICA’S STUDENTS.  As Mark Anthony once said, “if you have tears, prepare to shed them now.” The latest American College Testing (ACT) scores are out, assessing readiness of high school seniors to succeed in college, and it’s not good. Only 60% of high schoolers met collegiate success benchmarks in English, 46% in reading, 40% in math […] Read more »

IRRESPONSIBLE.  The amount of time some people spend trying to defend the indefensible – lagging education achievement – is truly irresponsible.
