Republicans for reform

Republicans are trying to address the parlous state of the public schools that serve minority populations (see the postings below). For example, Maryland’s new Republican Governor, Bob Ehrlich, is forging ahead with his plan to bring charter schools to Maryland, according to this editorial in the Washington Times. As noted in the Washington Times news story posted below, Prince Georges County Maryland, a predominantly African-American area in suburban Washington, D.C., is one of the two main areas in the United States where blacks have turned to home-schooling in order to escape from the public schools. Yet, Erhlich is already facing bruising opposition from Democrats and education bureaucrats as he tries to implement meaningful reform.
