In other words, Vermont is either:
A) led by a Republican governor and is therefore being punished;
B) is already spending way too much money per pupil and therefore the money is being withheld;
C) the White House thinks it has Vermont in the bag and therefore will send its re-election campaign money…I mean, education slush fund money…I mean, American tax dollars to other states that are a little more “purple” on the electoral coloring map.
This quote says it all…
Vermont’s chapter of the National Education Association is complaining…
(To be fair, that is an admittedly biased bit of quoting from the article. Not that the rest of the quote is that exciting.)
