You knew it was coming: The State Board of Education'slatest circus
has provided tasty fodder for Jon Stewart andThe Daily Show
The Founding Fathers, Stewart said in the introduction last night, debated "whether our government should be under strong federal control, or whether most decisions should be left to the states. Luckily in educaiton, Americans enjoy the best of both worlds. Our school standards are under the strong centralized control....of one state."
Feel the Texas pride coursing through your veins as the very best elected officials in the state get their well-deserved national exposure.
