In his weekly podcats, Sen. Ed Emery, R-Lamar, addresses right to work and two education bills he has sponsored.
Emery, a strong supporter of the right to work bill that passed the Senate, says it will provide greater opportunities for Missouri workers.
"We'll see results right away."
Emery also touts his bill to give each Missouri school a letter grade. For some reason, he thinks this will "keep parents engaged." If he thinks that is all it takes to keep parents engaged, he knows as little about parents as he does about public schools.
Emery also talks about his education savings account bill. which will allow corporations and individuals to receive tax credits for donating money for "scholarships" that parents can receive to establish educational savings accounts to use to send their children to private schools, religious schools (though Emery does not mention that one in this podcast) and virtual schools. He starts it off by saying parents could use the money to send their children to another public school, though it is highly doubtful that is the outcome Emery and others who support this legislation are seeking.
