Excellence shouldn’t be the goal of Washington state’s school system says Judith Billings, a former state superintendent who’s running for her old office on an anti-testing, anti-charters platform. Billings told the Seattle Post-Intelligencer:
“Everybody does not need to be a math whiz. Everybody does not need to be a spectacular writer.”
Good thing too. Everybody’s not.
Billings may be the union candidate once again, writes Stefan Sharkansky.
