Defending A Plan

By  | 

On Sunday, Governor Blagojevich defended his education proposal announced Thursday during his State of the State speech. Under the plan, the state board of education would be a cabinet agency that would answer to him. Critics have said the plan would take power away from the local school districts. But the governor says that isn't so.

Under his plan, he said local school districts would have more freedom to follow their own agendas.
