You have to give Ken credit for at least going to this event, and sticking up for his principles. The Beacon attempts to put the patina of bipartisanship on this event, but not very convincingly: “Parker is not a Democrat. She can name a handful of Republicans for whom she has voted.” Yeah, right. Perhaps Nelson Rockefeller or John Anderson...
The education lobby is not exactly a hotbed of limited government conservatives.
When Strickland talks about attempting to abide by the OH Supreme Court’s funding ruling, the translation is: taxes are going up. Massively. Which is the only message that the Government Schools lobby respects.
At least Ken has some thoughts beyond simply throwing ever increasing amounts of money into the black hole that the government schools have become.
