Governor Earl Ray Tomblin has set a bold agenda concerning education for this legislative session.
While our elected leaders must never lose sight of what truly brings prosperity, if we fail to properly prepare our young people for life in the 21st Century, then our outlook is going to be pretty bleak.
The old ideas are clearly not working. We spend piles of money, but are simply not seeing results in the classroom.
We have to do better. We owe our kids and we owe it to the future of our State.
