The Good of the State: Walker/Evers Project

Kinda nice to see this.

A system of clear, plentiful and sophisticated information for judging the quality of almost every school in Wisconsin, replacing a system that leaves a lot to be desired on those fronts - that is the goal of a collaboration that includes Gov. Scott Walker, state Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Evers and leaders of eight statewide education organizations.

When you come down to it, there is only ONE over-riding concern which elected officials should have: the good of the State. And it so happens that all proposals--legislative or other--should be viewed only through that lens.

If it doesn't serve the good of the State, it is not worth pursuing.

(That also applies at the FedGov level, which is why RoJo is fixed on spend/debt reduction.)

We find that Owen agrees, which should settle the matter.
