More Bill Bennett

Since Bill Bennett has been getting press for his comments lately, I thought I would post a link that sheds some light on how Bill feels about public schools.

A True Story About Bill Bennett by Reed Hundt

Excerpt from article:

Quoting Reed Hundt, former chairman of the FCC who says he had asked Bill Bennett for Republican help in passing legislation to provide internet capabilities to public schools:

He told me he would not help, because he did not want public schools to obtain new funding, new capability, new tools for success. He wanted them, he said, to fail so that they could be replaced with vouchers,charter schools, religious schools, and other forms of private education.

Bill Bennet lost me when his unpaid million-dollar slot machine gambling debt became known.

I don't care if he gambles, as long as he pays when he loses. It's other things that make me dislike him.
