In a media exclusive, we have Governor Bob McDonnell's entire news conference on education reform from earlier today. Among those who also spoke were Secretary of Education Gerard Robinson, Delegate Jimmie Massie (R-72, Henrico), the patron of school choice bill HB 2314, and Delegate Algie Howell (D-90, Norfolk), one of the bill's co-patrons.
"A child's educational opportunities should be determined by their intellect and work ethic, not their zip code."
Secretary Robinson: 115,000 students in seven states benefit from similar law.
Delegate Howell: "No student should be left behind because they can't afford to attend a great school."
