“We cannot go backward on education. It’s part of who we are as a people in this state and it’s what has differentiated us as a leader in the South,” Perdue said, according to her staff. “We are North Carolina, and we have chosen to become that because of our generational legacy of education.”
We cannot go backward. Backward.
In what way and manner is she thinking we’ll go backward?
Sure, but more spending doesn’t equate to better education.
She is preaching the old Democrat canard; Defend the defined solution – Don’t debate the problem.
See, the Democrats feel that the only way to improve education is to spend more. Therefore they feel that as long as they are able to defend the fact that we want to improve education, and who doesn’t, we should only continue to spend more and more.
Yet not one once of study goes into the fact that education outcomes don’t always depend on money.
