Scot Lehigh's op-ed today highlights the Boston Foundation report released yesterday which concluded that the bulk of the additional money poured into education since the Education Reform Act of 1993 has gone into employee health care costs rather than educating children.

Lehigh questions Governor Patrick's commitment to fixing the problem: "But Governor Deval Patrick and the Democratic Legislature have shown little if any appetite for such bold reform. Indeed, though Secretary of Education Paul Reville portrayed his boss as focused on finding a workable solution, “reluctant’’ or “half-hearted’’ would be more apt descriptions of Patrick’s approach."

Perhaps calls from constituents to Governor Patrick's office would help sway him. Sign up for our Action Alerts and we will let you know when it's time to start flooding the governor's office with calls!
