Tusk & Talon: Mourning Period Over

Excerpted from this post at Tusk & Talon
In Iowa, the governorship and both houses of the legislature are now in Democrat hands. One of their top priorities will be to reward the loyalty of the public service unions, in particular the National Education Association. This will be sold as "education reform" but make no mistake, the goal of any such reform will be to increase the number of dues-paying members of the NEA/ISEA. This is the driving force behind the universal pre-school proposal – to hire more public school pre-kindergarten teachers. Never mind whether it helps children learn. If it costs additional money that proves we're doing something, right?
