What campaign issue is closest to your heart?
AR: I’ve been a First Lady of the State. I have seen what happens to people’s lives if they don’t get a proper education. And we know the answers to that. The charter schools have provided the answers. The teachers’ unions are preventing those things from happening, from bringing real change to our educational system. We need to throw out the system.
I am sorry but according to Mitt Romney, Massachusetts was number one in education. He says it all the time on the campaign trail and seems very proud of it. I wonder if he knows how fundamentally disappointed in his education record his wife is? Or is she just being disingenuous, talking about things she has no clue about?
Just so you know, Massachusetts is one of the best places to get a public education in the country; they invest in education, are highly unionized and have some of the most restrictive charter school laws in the country. In the education business since they are successful we call that best practices.
And if all these facts seem incongruent to the Romney’s positions, yeah, I agree but after following them for the past couple years we should all be used to it.
