GOP candidate for state superintendent is touting an unfortunate endorsement today on the TEA Party conspiracy blog PolyMontana.
Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush says he ran Florida schools “using some of the same ideas that Sandy is proposing.” With a vote for Welch, says Jeb, Montana can be “just like Florida.”
Problem is, these ideas ran Florida schools into the toilet.
Montana eighth-graders have the highest science and reading scores in the nation, while Florida eighth-graders ranked 30th and 31st. In math, Montana eighth-graders have the second highest scores in the nation. Florida ranks 37th.
Perhaps if Welch can get the TEA Partiers to take down the blog post soon some of the damage can be mitigated.
