I was looking at the pile of campaign literature that has accumulated at my house with Mrs. Greg L, spending a moment comparing the pieces, and came across some real beauties.
Jeanette Rishell sent out a piece a week or so ago regarding her education policies, and Mrs. Greg L who has been a middle school teacher in Virginia wasn’t too impressed. Rishell’s promise to require regular evaluations and professional development has been a requirement in Virginia for years. I guess promising to implement something that is already happening is an easy way to waste a little ink without looking too foolish to the average voter who might not be familiar with current professional standards for teachers. Her education labor union friends should have helped her on this, though.
The best part is this:
The skills our children will need to meet the rapdily (sic) changing economy of the 21st century should be taught beginning at a very young age.
Tell me you forgot to proofread a mail piece concerning education. This is just about as bad as sending out press releases for several months which inaccurately describe the composition of the 50th District.
