Support Building for Florida-Style K-12 Reforms?

Sen. Fischmann had a very nice opinion piece in today’s Albuquerque Journal on the need for K-12 education reform. While he did not go as far as I’d have liked in terms of promoting school choice, the primary thrust of the article is the elimination of social promotion, which is straight out of the Florida-style reforms being advocated by Dr. Matthew Ladner who has written this paper and will be speaking about the topic at a series of events around the state at the end of July. More information on that here.

The fact is that we need to come up with innovative, cost-effective solutions to our education woes and we needed to do this yesterday. I applaud Sen. Fischmann for keeping the discussion going and being willing to speak out.
