Check out the editorial in today’s Washington Post about David Obey’s shameless attempt to redirect funding away from RTTT and into the teacher unions’ coke-and-hooker slush fund. While there’s a lot in it that’s worth reading, I particularly appreciated this twist of the knife:
That Mr. Obey’s proposal would pull back money intended to fund Race to the Top applications that have already been filed can only be seen as undercutting any credibility U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan would have in coaxing state officials to make the often-hard political decisions of education reform.
Did you hear what Dave just said about you, Arne? Are you going to stand there and let him say that? Fight! Fight!
