3 guys who sent their children to Private schools

propose "major education reform" a meaningless, feel good term if there ever was one.

How many "major education reform" initiatives have we had over the last 20 years. Hundreds. And how many have been proposed by people who sent their children to private schools. Probably as many.

THIS IS CRAZY!!! We don't need any more studies, we already KNOW HOW TO EDUCATE children.

Bill Frist and Phil Bredesn and Karl Dean ALL refused to send their children to public schools and yet they self-righteously and condescendingly ABSOLUTELY REFUSE to offer Tennessee parents the same choices they DEMANDED for their own children.

Waste our time with another STUDY??? This is INSANITY!!!

Former U.S. Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist announced today that he will chair a new nonpartisan statewide initiative aimed at making education Tennessee’s top priority and accelerating education reform efforts across the state.

The initiative is called the Tennessee State Collaborative on Reforming Education — or SCORE. Frist announced the initiative at Fall Hamilton Elementary School in Nashville.

He was accompanied by Gov. Phil Bredesen, Tennessee Commissioner of Education Tim Webb and Nashville Mayor Karl Dean.

“The world is changing,” Frist said, “and far too many of Tennessee’s schools are failing to prepare our students for this new world.”
