Everyone should go over to the NYC Parents Blog to see how education issues did on election day.

Results were not that awful as Bridgeport, Connecticut voted down mayoral control.  California approved Proposition 30 to stop further budget cuts to education.  Charters are having a tough time in Washington; an awful school superintendent in Indiana was ousted and Idaho voted down three proposals that would have harmed teachers.

Closer to home, it appears that control of the NY Senate is turning over to the Democrats. Hopefully, that is good news.

On the other hand, we had some setbacks too as Georgia voted for charters (and Washington still may approve them); Oakland voted for a deform minded school board and more.  Read all about it all from Parents Across America.
