Tony Bennett, the defeated state superintendent from Indiana, has landed the job as state commissioner in Florida.

Bennett is the hero to the rightwing “reform” sector, a champion of privatization, vouchers, charters, online for-profit schools, and the Common Core. His last action in Indiana was to lower standards for new trackers and principals, so that no preparation was needed to become a teacher and anyone could become a principal with only two years of experience as a teacher, even in higher education.

Jeb Bush is mad for Bennett, who serves as head of Bush’s Chiefs for Change.
