Governor Patrick on Wednesday named a new Education Secretary, Worcester's own Paul Reville. Much has been written about Reville (who, according to the Telegram and Gazette has two children in Worcester Public Schools), but I thought this comment (from the Boston Globe's coverage) most hopeful:
"If we want to give them a world-class education, the kind of education that we'd want to give our own children, then we're going to have to spend more money over time."
One wonders how long "over time" is. Children are in school now, and we want that education for them now!
