The Governor and Education

He talked about the dismal state of education in MI… well that’s what you get when you gut educational funding. Hello? Doesn’t take a geek to figure that out.
I only heard bits of Gov. Snider’s speech. When I poked my head in I heard him at once talk about loosening standards in terms of removing caps on charters and going to cyber education, and then complain because the general schools are letting us down on standards. Slap me silly, but the whole point of innovation is that it’s supposed to deliver results, but it’s hard to see how that happens if you are  unwilling to do anything about actually demanding standards let alone transparency for such “innovations”.
More later, on Windmillin.
