Election Addendum

Per the post below, a couple more thoughts. First, forgot to mention CO’s incoming governor (Ritter) and NY’s (Spitzer) as potential innovators. They are, Spitzer has an enormous mandate, and like Patrick in MA they’re inheriting lively charter school sectors. That’s for the good, another positive byproduct of all the governorships that Ds picked up yesterday is that owning these statehouses for a bit might force a greater seriousness about education policy within the party. And keep an eye on new Dem Governor O’Malley in Maryland. He’s got innovator instincts and now he is the one guy in the state who can broker a serious deal to do something about the public schools in Baltimore.

Also, I think this is some sort of cry for help but have no idea what the right intervention is…
