New Democrats In New York State On Education

Blogs, Letters & Testimonials

June 26, 2007

As described by our Republican friend up north in Albany, Tom Carroll, on the issue of public charter schools:

"The under 50 crowd in the Democratic party is pro-charter. The old guard is anti-charter. The Young Turks are now in power. Eventually, the old guard will fade away."

Perhaps I'll start changing the "DFER Qoute of the Week" feature on the front page of this site to a daily feature, as this would make a good one. Also, the National Education Association is doing its annual national hand-wringing session next week, meaning all of the Democrats running for president will be on hand to pander. Should be lots of good quotes there.
