The right wing yahoos who want to gut public education. They started by passing the law saying school couldn't start till the last Monday in August. Then they concocted the idea that districts could become DOIs, sold on the ability to have more control over the calendar. And then they stuck all the provisions into DOI that allow districts to voluntarily shirk almost all of the state regulations and standards that keep districts accountable. It's a very smart, insidious recipe for long term failure. When DOI finally hollows out the public schools, the legislature will be able to sell more vouchers and charter school crap to the public, and we will officially take our place at 50th in the nation in education. |
But hey, people will make money off of all it, so who cares?
