Quick de­ci­sion con­firms gov­er­nor is in unions’ pocket

Albuquerque Journal - - OP-ED -

AF­TER HAV­ING spent all of three days in of­fice, which were no doubt de­voted to in­ten­sive re­search re­gard­ing the ef­fi­cacy of PARCC, our new gov­er­nor de­cided to drop the exam, stat­ing: “I know PARCC isn’t work­ing.” Ap­par­ently, she knows more than Ed­u­ca­tors El­e­vat­ing New Mex­ico and NewMex­i­coKid­sCAN, both of which op­posed the move. The point is that there is enough of a dif­fer­ence of in­formed opin­ion to war­rant fur­ther study. Un­for­tu­nately, Gov. Michelle Lu­jan Gr­isham con­firmed what many vot­ers have sus­pected, namely, that the teach­ers unions have her in their pocket. JOEL WIDMAN Rio Ran­cho
