Earlier today, I posted a plea by the Network for Public Education Action Fund, addressed to Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton. It urged him to veto the state budget because it included a voucher proposal.

We made a boo-boo!

Governor Dayton vetoed the bill last Friday! Forgive my error. The outcome is great news.

So, retrospectively, we thank and congratulate Governor Dayton for his wisdom in supporting Minnesota’s public school and blocking efforts to divert public money to religious and private schools.

I am happy to name him to the honor roll of the blog for standing up for public education.
