I just saw this editorial today, Texas lawmakers want our schools to fail
. It makes the case, very well I might add, that what has been happening these last few years with our public schools is not incompetence. Instead it's all just part of the plan. I recommend reading the whole thing but here's a little to get you started:
Sometimes I have to remind myself that even though some of Texas' lawmakers meet the definition, the leadership in the Texas Legislature is not as incompetent as it appears.
In fact, the governor, the speaker and veteran lawmakers who are trying to remake public schools, like the Republicans' education point man, State Rep. Kent Grusendorf, are not incompetent at all. They are doing exactly what they've set out to do.
