This is what I’m talking about! Some decent media coverage about putting education front and center in the presidential election. It makes me happy that someone who can do something (as in not just me and my little blog) is trying to make this a national issue. As a matter of fact, the article says that polls are showing that education and the economy are ranking as more important than the war in Iraq.
I was all kinds of shocked to hear that. I mean the war in Iraq IS important and all of the men and women over there should definitely be in our minds this election season but that is what everyone is focusing on in the media. There cause doesn’t need me to go around waving the banner. Education, on the other hand, does need some banner waving.
One last thing, I’m not by any means saying I’m with Watts on what he thinks needs to be done with education but any discussion at all is better than what I have been seeing!
Do you think education will play an important role in the presidential election this year or am I just dreaming??
