    A FL school board member is sure to draw the ire of the teachers’ unions with this Op/Ed:

    Several months ago a friend invited me to attend a local meeting of an organization which advocated separation of government and schools as a method to improve education. Some of their concepts had merit, others did not, but I signed up to receive their literature as I do with every opportunity to assess and discern a diversity of concepts and research.

    That’s a gutsy move (and sentence). I wish her luck in her post-political career.

    The only way to avoid the “consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds” syndrome is to be aware of it and she seems to be aware.

    If she is openminded enough to attend the separation of school and state meetings and spots validity this early in the game, driven by the right thing to do and not politics and money, I would love to see what side of the fence she winds up on. I would love to send her some Gatto and Holt links.

    She will do fine. It doesn’t appear that politics, or blindly bossing people around while protecting her paycheck is her priority.

    She is no Margaret Boyce.
