Credit where due

A new trend we've noticed in Massachusetts education: whenever any district gets a grant, there's a press release from the Governor's office. So then, we had these articles yesterday about extended day grants, even though the grants aren't new, aren't necessarily going to different districts, and aren't adding new programs.
This was particularly silly when we were notified about our federal grants, something for which we as districts apply to the federal government, and thus have nothing (save oversight) to do with the state at all.
In other words: the Governor's laying it on a little thick when it comes to taking credit about things in Massachusetts education. Proceed with caution.
