Newt Gingrich: Federal Control Of Education Is A National Security Issueby Doug Mataconis
There are some things that Newt Gingrich has said over the years that I agree with, and I’m somewhat a fan of his alternate history novels, but this is just plain daffy:
Newt Gingrich gave a luncheon talk about education at the American Enterprise Institute today. Among other things, he said he’d “argue with any conservative” about the role of the federal government with respect to education. It’s a matter of national security, he said. He called on the secretary of defense to give a speech every year on the state of our schools.
You want an argument on this one Newt ?
I say bring it on.
