Is it unreasonable to ask for sound public policy not guilded by ideology?

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.
