However like you wouldn’t want me, a chubby, short, middle aged white guy with knee problems on your basketball team, I don’t want him on the school board either.
He is a corporate reformer type without any education experience or any relevant experience for that matter. The truth is he being in the navy or not being in the navy in no way qualifies him for being on the school board and furthermore I am not impressed that he was able to garner the endorsements of three men who have been incredibly bad for our education system, Bush, Thrasher and Wise.
Do you like standardized tests, don’t think teaching experience matters, think the bigger the class the better or think we should double down on privatization? If so then Fischer is your guy because those are the positions of those three men too.
So at the end of the day it doesn’t matter if he lied or was just inartful, what matters is do you want to have somebody help fix the problems in our schools, Jon Heymann or do you want somebody to blow our schools up.
