“And some of those tasked with making schools better are more focused on preserving tired partisan wedges rather than looking for innovative ways to provide more and better opportunities in rural communities.” – Mark Johnson, February 7th in an op-ed he wrote entitled “What I meant about $35K teacher pay” in the News & Observer (http://www.newsobserver.com/opinion/op-ed/article198795214.html).
And from the “Official Twitter of NC Superintendent Mark Johnson” on February 16th:
If you are unaware, Jason Saine is probably one of the more “partisan” lawmakers we have in NC. He is a champion of charter schools.
AND HE IS NOW THE NATIONAL CHAIRMAN OF THE AMERICAN LEGISLATIVE EXCHANGE COUNCIL (ALEC).
So much for not being partisan.
