Lynn's Change of Heart
Rep. Susan Lynn changed her mind about the Tennessee education reform bill
One really can't blame Susan Lynn for her change of heart. The concerns which she had about the Governor's proposal were shared even by many Republicans who ended up voting for the bill. Positive reform of our education system shouldn't be something that comes about solely because the federal government is dangling money in front of our State. However, many of the changes in our education law, such as achievement standards for teachers and students to help measure which schools are succeeding and which are not-and which teachers are better meeting their students' needs-are things that conservatives have demanded for years.
