Earlier this week, Rae Ann Knopf of the Connecticut Council for Education Reform wrote an op-ed opposing raised bill SB 1097, urging Connecticut to “stay strong” in support of the so-called Big Six corporate education reform agenda. Other than a lot of dramatic hyperbole, she neglected to actually say much about what was the matter with the bill.

MADISON — The Occupy movement has an endearing bit of a Barnum & Bailey flavor about it that brings me back to multiple marches on Washington. Now, it seems, like the circus, Occupy will be heading to winter quarters. Instead of heading to Florida however, Occupiers are eyeing campuses. This is a good move. When the leaves return next spring, amidst the heat of election campaigns students will be primed to make some noise. And why not, there won’t any jobs for them; those have all gone overseas.
