Re: “Education Budgeting

Are you sorry yet, David Safier, that you decided to "hold your nose" and help Ducey et al. get Prop 123 passed?

Looks a lot like all the sophisticated politicos in your network who like to talk about "wedges" and levers and believe they know how to pull strings behind the scenes, patching together big scary "NEXT STEPS!" coalitions etc., ad nauseam, and trying generally to play hard ball with the big boys have ended up with quite a bit of egg on their faces.

Too bad you joined them and helped them embarrass themselves, or now you would be in a good position to make the point that the right way to build coalitions is basing them on sound principles, not on inadvisable concessions made to bad actors.

Re: “Education Budgeting

Check a recent article in the newsweekly "Economist" for an unbiased review of vouchers and tax credits used around the world for education. The basic thrust of the article is that vouchers & tax credits do work - where there is strong central control. Netherlands is a case in point - number 7 overall in the world (US is 39th), vouchers are used there in religious and sectarian schools but the central government plays a strong roll in ensuring a quality education.
