Smart Money

New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson has a plan to scrap No Child Left Behind and raise the starting salary for teachers to $40,000 a year.

US Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings had this to say: "No Child is working in New Mexico. I'm sure the teachers of New Mexico would not want the governor dishonoring their work."

I wonder what the teachers of New Mexico really think about this "dishonor." Do you think that Ms. Spellings is reaching just a little bit here?

This would be the same Spellings who so wonderfully crashed and burned on Jeopardy?
