It’s Friday, a fun time for Colorado Republicans to zing Gov. Bill Ritter for declaring February 12 “Colorado Loves California Day.” I get the humor of all the possibilities. It was last year about this time I made the same point.
But I want to take a different tack, and point out one small reason to love California: Larry Sand and the California Teachers Empowerment Network (CTEN) — which very recently was featured in Townhall magazine for its success in letting Golden State teachers know about their various membership options.
Yes, Colorado loves California in this regard, because we too through the Independence Institute have the Independent Teachers website, which lets teachers in our own backyard know about their membership options. Expanding teacher rights, informing teacher choice: This we can celebrate.
