Romney Gets It

Romney understands problems with the current Educational problem. A short article on his testimony today concerning Bush's "No Child Left Behind" act said this:

Governor Romney says spending more money on education doesn't correlate into improved student performance.

Instead, Romney says it's critical to get better teachers in the classroom.

Finally someone willing to recgonize the fact that study after study shows that more money thrown at education does not equal better results.

This article goes on to say:
One of the more controversial proposals Romney supports would force parents of students in the bottom ten percent of performing schools to attend weekend training sessions dealing with homework and after school programs.

This is new to me, and I would need to now more about this before commenting. But I will say that Romney does show that great performance by children in school begins with a positive educational approach in the home.
