Every state except Iowa has standards-based education reform and they
are moving closer and closer to it. Almost all governors aspire to be
President. The key to the white house is to be an education governor so
you can be the education President. The way to be an education governor
is to proclaim your belief in high standards, test students to see if
they have achieved the standards, and hold students, teachers, and
administrators accountable. That is how Both Clinton and Bush did it.
As long as it gets people elected, they will continue to push it. That
was always the plan of Gray Davis. Of course he is a bit off target
now, far more likely to be recalled than elected to the presidency.

Are there any states left that don't have this mindset? We complain at
school site about the agendas handed down from the state; not exactly
scenario likely to change anything at state level! I have written my
legislators. The replies come on heavy paper, thanking me so much for
taking the time to write, patting me on the head, and explaining how
am, how much we really do need the tests, and how proud they are of
supporting them. Letters received so far from Gray Davis, Howard
McKeon, George and Sharon Runner, Jack O'Connell, and Diane Feinstein.
about a state-wide petition instead of individual letters?
