Cameron Vernon: Berger out of touch

Education not ‘broken’

Before I listen to anything else Sen. Phil Berger says on education I want to hear about his experiences in public education. Will he please describe his visits to schools around our state and give us some examples of what he has observed?

Certainly anyone who labels public education as “broken” has seen firsthand everything that is wrong with our schools. If he has described his visits and experiences in schools around our state then I apologize because I have looked and have yet to see any articles where he communicates these observations. But if he has yet to spend ample time in our schools to make informed decisions then shame on him.

I guarantee if he would take some time and actually visit our schools, he would see school personnel and students doing amazing things on a daily basis.
