The Sacramento Bee reports that democrats are beginning to split on how to fix education. Many democrats are beginning to separate themselves from teachers unions and other proponents of traditional education.
The Bee quotes Gloria Romero, the head of the California chapter of Democrats for Education Reform as saying, "It's a donkey in the room. It's Democrats who have been tightly aligned with education's special interests year after year, decade after decade, and we haven't progressed. So we have to examine our conscience, our party, and really forge a new path forward."
Other democrats don't seem worried, but the good news for education reformers is that this process has begun in California. Let's hope this is an evolution that continues.
