Chris Reed talks Props 30, 38 on National Public Radio

Oct. 5, 2012

CalWatchdog contributor Chris Reed was on “Which Way, L.A.?” on KCRW on Thursday to talk about why Propositions 30 and 38 deserve to fail.  KCRW is one of the most popular NPR stations in the nation.

Reed was in a broad discussion with journalists and some prominent defenders of the education status quo — and he got a faintly sympathetic treatment from Evan Halper of The Los Angeles Times, who requoted one of his potshots at Prop. 30.

    I think Mr. Reed is correct, these Propositions are both being “marketed” as “social justice”, when in fact, their little more than a support for the CA Teachers salaries. Better to vote both done, push for real school choice, with the funds going with the student, and performance standards for the teachers, as all government employees should get, rather than automatic p[ay raises based on years of service, or courses taken.
