Education forum follow-up
The Cookeville Times' Lynette Judd asked two questions of the seven gubernatorial candidates who spoke in Nashville on Thursday night.
Question 1: What is your opinion on the “Race to the Top” funding that Tennessee is trying to obtain and how what would you propose we spend that funding?
Question 2: If this funding is received and expires in five years, what would your long term budget goals be to help the Tennessee school system?
Click here to read their answers. An aside: it doesn't seem that the candidates' responses were edited for grammar or spelling. This provides an informative glimpse into the verbal communication skills possessed by each of those who would be your next governor.
