Quiet Second Day. Legislators are getting their bearings and there was no real action at the Legislature today. I hope to post some pics of the newly-remodeled Capitol. I haven't had the chance to see much of anything above the tunnel level to this point, but I will say that the revamped basement level is absolutely magnificent. There is a new reception area that can be used for press conferences or presentations along with the remodeled Rathskaller (Cafeteria). It's all very impressive.
With not much happening at the state level today, I thought I would post a couple of articles from national publications about what might be coming from the Trump administration as early as this spring.
Here's an article from Education Week:
Donald Trump and K-12: 5 Things to Watch in 2017
And here's an article from The American Prospect. Be forewarned, the American Prospect writes from a perspective that is solidly left-of-center, so the views here do not necessarily reflect those of the blog master.
The War on Public Schools
