Pulaski group off to China

Posted By on Thu, Nov 18, 2010 at 6:43 AM

The blog that stirred the broth in the recent hot races for Pulaski County School Board is back at it. Now, the issue is a trip to China by a school district delegation, ostensibly to explore teaching Chinese in the schools.

Teaching Chinese in the schools? Excellent idea. Need for expenditure by a fiscally distressed school district to send a delegation to China to discuss the topic, even if subsidized by a Chinese group? A fair question, at least. (It IS possible to teach Chinese without first sending a delegation to China.) The web's enabling of instant citizen participation in public affairs? Also excellent.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
