The EFF Finds a Monster Under the Bed!
I get mail. Poorly formatted mail that didn't fit into the frames, but mail nonetheless:
With so much to offer, online learning is rocking the boat of the status quo. It’s only a matter of time before education statists target online options for elimination or regulation. The bottom line: These options will only remain available if families and other citizens defend them.
Thing is, digital learning is already regulated. Take, for example, Senate Bill 5378 from 2009, which would have changed how on-line schools are accredited. It passed the Senate unanimously, meaning "statists" (read: secular socialists!) like Pam Roach, Bob McCaslin, and Mark Schoesler all thought it was a good enough idea.
Or Senate Bill 5410, which was sponsored by the usual members of the liberal coalition: Eric Oemig, Rosemary McAuliffe, Bob Morton, and Rodney T....
....wait, Bob Morton? Republican of Kettle Falls/Orient? 7th LD, Stevens County, Northeast Washington? That Bob Morton? Make Eastern Washington the 51st state Bob Morton? What a damned statist!
A great way to implode the whole darn project, guys, would be to keep overstating the case.
