For anyone interested, my latest op-ed contribution ran yesterday in the Colorado Daily, which starts as follows:
Given the significant debt future generations are now obligated to repay, President Barack Obama’s new “stimulus” package could be far better used to promote meaningful education reform in Colorado.
Rather than helping, the large amount of free-flowing federal funds may end up undermining efforts to improve educational opportunity in Colorado.
It too heavily subsidizes the status quo, while needlessly placing promising innovations at risk.
Hopefully it comes off as a little bit irritable and provocative, but ultimately one idea for helping to make the best out of a bad situation.
