There are a lot of provisos in this budget, but its optimistic outlook in our gloomy world is refreshing. The broad agreement speaks to the reality check the entire legislature is dealing with despite the expected Republican sniping.

Asst. Sec. of Ed. Ian Rosenblum is a pseudo-educator. His parents were teachers, but he has not taught according to online sources. He has worked for education think tanks, but has never had to deal with being a teacher. Even Arne Duncan did some tutoring, but Rosenblum is cut from the sa…

School principals and assistant principals and counselors earn every penny. I'm married to one, and she is on the job 12 hours a day in the office while still doing meetings and dealing with phone calls about another two hours a day. During the pandemic there are no weekend sports, but th…
