Ugh. Here comes the traveling Obama education circus again. This time, in Baltimore:
The odd couple of former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and the Rev. Al Sharpton will bring their quest for education reform to Baltimore on Friday.
Gingrich and Sharpton are on a three-city “listening and learning” tour to find out which school strategies are working and why.
The former speaker is a conservative Republican, and Sharpton is a civil rights activist and liberal Democrat. They don’t agree on much, but they found common ground in the concept that education is the new frontier on civil rights. They say the quest to improve schools should be nonpartisan.
Gingrich and Sharpton are joining Education Secretary Arne Duncan on the tour.
“Nonpartisan?” How about non-racial demagogue/non-hoaxster?
No quest to improve schools can succeed when it includes one of the nation’s worst, grievance-mongering shakedown artists.
