The Governor on education

The Governor on Education
When California Connected sat down to talk to Gov. Schwarzenegger about his ongoing efforts to transform California’s government, it was clear that education was very much on his mind.
In last week’s program, the Governor said that budget reform was impossible without changing Proposition 98 and that, in spite of the billions spent on educating the state’s children, there is little accountability within the school system.
This week, Gov. Schwarzenegger argues on behalf of his proposals to revise teacher tenure and salary. He also continues his rhetorical battle with the teachers union, defending his plans against their accusations while getting in a few jabs of his own.
“The unions are actually holding us back,” he says, “from making progress in education.”
