    Thank you.  

    Here in Iowa the new Sheriff - excuse me, the new Governor - has appointed a flack from Colorado to "improve" schools.  As one of our courageous local reporters has carefully noted, this man's  published work demonstrates that teachers teach for the love of the job, not for money.  His stated goal is to change that.

    There are many things that need to be improved in public schooling, and there are bad teachers.  But anyone who encourages blanket contempt and disrespect for teachers is not interested in improving the schools.  

    Thank you also for continuing to teach. It is a hard job, and little understood. Someone has to invest in the future. Republicans have given up on it, and on our young people.
