On Saturday, July 23, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch Editorial Board hit the nail on the head when it said:
For St. Louis and Missouri to thrive, support for education must be more than a political slogan. It must be the No. 1 goal of a coalition that includes Mr. Nixon, the Republicans who control the Legislature and the business community that has exerted pressure on those elected officials to call legislators back to Jefferson City.
I applaud the Post-Dispatches editorial board for recognizing there is no greater issue in the state of Missouri than education, and I hope that Missouri’s leaders are listening. (To read the full editorial, click here).
