Governors Love Them Some Education Proposals

Kavan Peterson over at Stateline.org does a great job rounding up the various school-related notions and initiatives that this nation's governors are coming up with this year, thanks to new budget surpluses -- and looming elections (State surpluses a boon to education).

Yes, it's true, big education plans make great politics, especially when state tuitions have been going up double digits each year and teacher salaries have been falling behind the state next door. It doesn't even necessarily matter whether the plans go through. If your plan stalls out, just blame it on balky legislators .
