Our take: Among hearing Governor Mitt Romney's ideas for education reform on Tuesday, he focused on the roles of parents and that they can't always pick and choose where their children would be educated at. Instead they should lift the schools their children can go to. Sara Murray, from The Wall Street Journal reported on Romney's ideas on education:
"It was an ode to parents and a takedown of the teachers union.
In Mitt Romney's appearance at NBCs Education Nation Summit Tuesday, the Republican nominee pushed an education plan that highlighted the returns on a family's investment rather than the government's. And, drawing on his stump speech rhetoric, he railed against teachers unions as organizations with outsize political influence that dont represent the interests of students.
Mr. Romney, whose education plan is centered on expanding charter schools and school choice, left it up to parents to spur change in flailing public schools."
