Quote of the moment: Threat to public education?


According to former Delaware Gov. Pete DuPont, the Republican Speaker of the Utah House of Representatives Greg Curtis said this:

“We do not reward excellence in education. We don’t fund it, we don’t demand it, and don’t encourage it.”

So, is his advocacy of vouchers part of his plan to not reward excellence in education?  Utah schools perform above the national average with far less than the national average in per pupil funding, with overcrowded classes, and with teacher pay below the norm.  By almost all measures, Utah public schools provide excellence in education.

Why doesn’t the legislature reward such performance?

That’s not what Curtis meant to say, for course.  Somebody tell Greg Curtis that his Freudian slip is showing.
