What will Senator Hutchison say about this:
President Barack Obama, delivering a schoolhouse pitch Tuesday for a $1.35 billion expansion of his signature education plan, promised to "raise the bar" on what is expected of public school teachers and students.I've already mentioned that I am disposed to agree with our president*. Perry has disagreed. What will KBH do?
The expansion would allow individual districts, such as the hard-pressed Fort Worth district, to apply directly for some of the federal money.
* On a theoretical level, I don't think that the federal government should be collecting taxes from the states to return it to them capriciously (and when I saw capriciously, I mean: according to the winner-takes-all nature of Congressional leadership). But we live in a world of second bests.
