(Guest post by Greg Forster)
Jay Mathews and I are rebooting our somewhat troublesome bet. We’re starting over from scratch. This time, rather than counting legislative chambers, we’re going to count “enactments” of school choice. Any time a new school choice program or expansion of a school choice program (defined the same way as before) is enacted, that counts as one.
I have to get to seven enactments in 2011 to win.
We’re currently at four:
1. AZ new program
2. AZ program expansion
3. CO new program
4. UT program expansion
I’m getting out a little ahead of the Arizona governor, here, but those bills are both slam dunk at this point.
I warned Jay that Indiana is looking pretty good, so it’s really a fight over whether I can get two wins in places like Wisconsin, Oklahoma and D.C. He’s cool with that.
