Rick Hess has provided a summary of a speech that Arne Duncan delivered at AEI yesterday that is a MUST READ. The hyperlink function of the blog seems to be malfunctioning, so here is the link:
Go read it NOW.
P.S. The Longhorn family is happy to accept Mike Petrilli into the ranks of BOOM Nation. As Lyle likes to sing:
Secretary Duncan tells a self-selected audience what they want to hear. The gullible Mr Hess is impressed. Why? There was no courage, no exceptional honesty, or unusual insight on display. Did the Secretary offer a way out for parents of children stuck in wretched schools? Did the Secretary suggest how courageous members of elected school boards could survive the opposition of unionized public-sector employees? No.
He killed the DC voucher program. Who cares what a liar says?
Longhorn nation has to be grateful to accept him, they haven’t had a BOOM moment all season.
Oi vey…don’t I know it!
