There’s not much of a constituency for real change and few states that could actually make good use of the funds; my current short list:
·FL: enough residual Bush leadership
· RI: Mayoral Academies are a breakthrough for new schools
·LA: Pastorek is the best and most aggressive state leader we have (interesting that he’s an outsider…)
·CO: strong leadership in Denver and from Lt. Gov
Huh. That was easy. We could use a new influx of money since we've pretty much dissassembled everything Gates under TVA paid for a decade ago. Let's try again!
OTOH, there's only one small mayoral academy planned right now. Perhaps we can just build it out of bales of dollar bills.
