No surprise, I'm not Ed Supe Huppenthal's biggest fan, and I find his reenergized obsession with TUSD over its Culturally Relevant Curriculum truly scary (See my post, Huppenthal to TUSD: We really don't want to break your thumbs, but . . .). But credit where credit is due. Hupp is on record saying the legislature needs to budget more money for K-12 education, an apparent change of heart. A quote from a recent Howie Fischer article:
"Our school system needs to be compensated at least for inflation," he said. "And they need a little bit of catch-up ground from the cuts over the last couple of years."
Ann-Eve Pedersen analyzes Hupp's new position ed funding while summarizing the history of the education budget cuts on our cable TV show, Education: The Rest of the Story.
"Education: The Rest of the Story" airs Thursdays at 4:30pm on Cox channel 20 or Comcast channel 74.
