I know this is difficult for some to believe, considering the tackles delivered and postmidnight illegal formations, but public education keeps pushing down the field of nation building. Public education has been hit hard by the difficult economy, and by opportunists who wish to make a profit off of education. Recently a highly, questionable play singled out educators from all state employees and disallowed payroll deductions. This legislative play will be reviewed by the courts and by the voters that are tired of such embarrassing behaviors by some legislators. Despite no-win plays, the good news is: progress continues with abundance, in our schools!
