Democrat v. Democrat

It sure looks like the old splits in the Democratic party on education are reemerging.  That’s not surprising given the timing – open seat presidency in 2016 creates a vacuum  – as well as policy differences and politics.  Richard Whitmire and I take a look at that in USA Today this morning.

Most non-New Yorkers know only two things about Bill de Blasio, the city’s new progressive mayor: Heeats pizza with a knife and fork, and Al Roker attacked him for sending students to school in a snowstorm.

But parents should know a third: He’s waging a Democrat vs. Democrat battle over education issues that could spill into the 2016 Democratic presidential primary and into your community.

Entire op-ed here.
