Some Mayors Get It

Read the letter "Wrong Way Race" by Richmond mayor Gayle McLaughlin commending Oakland Mayor Ron Dellums.

The absolute last thing we need right now is more standards and tests.

The thing no one is saying about the Race for the Top money, one thing, is that it will not add any funds to California schools. It will just replace funding lost due to cuts at the state and local levels.

The money we get from it won't improve funding at all. I may help some places maintain the status quo.

And it's a pretty sad status quo right now. They need to push all of that money into libraries, especially in California.
