Over in the State Senate the Republicans and Democrats are going at it hammer and tongs, fighting it out over their education platforms.
The Democrats say, Spend more money. Now.
And Republicans say, No – let’s require third graders to read.
The Democrats say, Failing third graders who can’t read is terrible – it’s better to spend more money now.
And Republicans say, Social promotions are terrible too – require students to read.
Then Democrats say, again, You’re just not spending enough money.
It’s a simple debate but in a way it says a lot about the differences between Democrats and Republicans.
