|Daniels: An education governor|

|I am appalled that politicians and others are still clueless about the actual impact of Mitch |
Daniel's and Tony Bennett's "educational reforms". If one reads the above article carefully, one can see that no where among those quoted were any actual teachers, principals, or superintendents. The governor and his cohorts have approached education as if it were a business and have applied business perspectives to the choices they have made. The problem with that approach is that education is an instution of CHILDREN and those who work with them struggle with the deficits that society and families bequeath to these vulnerable members of our society.
As a registered Republican and retired educator, I have voted for many of those in power. However, I along with many others, split my ticket to vote for Glenda Ritz to make the point that these "reforms" are NOT what they are proported to be. If the people in power choose to ignore what was spoken by voters, they too will suffer the fate of Tony Bennett. PLEASE LISTEN TO THE VOICES OF THE VOTERS!

|Thank God common sense has ruled in this instance! If a child is hurting himself and others and refuses to comply to adult authority, I'm so glad that there is something like a taser available to bring him into compliance. I am glad the police officers are cleared but I am sorry they have had to endure all the negative publicity. Those who have never worked with out of control children who do not respect themselves or others are the people who condemn using reasonable force to bring such situations under control.|
