During her news conference about the budget yesterday, Gov. Perdue employed the oldest line in the play book of those who wrongly believe that more money equates to higher educational achievement.
Saying she would never turn her back on North Carolina’s children, Democratic Gov. Bev Perdue urged GOP legislative leaders to find more money for education in the waning days of the 2012 short session.
“I’m calling on them to do more for the children,” Perdue said during a brief, hastily called news conference held on the Capitol’s east lawn. “The future of North Carolina is at stake.”
The governor could use some new speechwriters.
For those who want to know what really is and isn’t in the education portion of the new budget that is on the governor’s desk, the facts can be found here.
