What is it that we heard from DC during debt talks? Never let a crisis go to waste.
I think that is about to happen to us. The reform/privatization/for-profit agenda will be pushed hard in the upcoming legislative session. Schools in Missouri may be different, but will they be better? The Interim Committee on Education will hear a lot about the transfer situation in St. Louis.
Opinion polls and sound bites will be plentiful in the coming months. In the end I fear ideology will get in the way of sound public policy like it has time and time again.
