Read the "Strib" lead editorial for May 23, 2008 and you will find that the DFL legislature did not even come close to solving the current or future education funding problem in spite of their majority status.
Sen. Olseen and Rep. Kalin, powerhouses of education influence, experience, interest and promises came away essentially empty-handed. And forget about the DFL bragging about the $51 per pupil added funding - according to the Star that is a one-time deal and then we are back in the same financial troubled waters as we look to the future.
Obama is right! We need a change.
