Obama's Education Secretary Slams Perry's Texas: 'I Feel Very, Very Badly For The Children There'


When asked for comment by Bloomberg News, Perry campaign spokesman Mark Miner fired back.

"The president's secretary of education may want to do a little more homework before commenting on education in Texas," said Miner. "Under Governor Perry, Texas has been a national leader in adopting college and career-ready curriculum standards that will ensure Texas students graduate prepared to succeed in college and the workplace."

Miner also added: "Texas continues to lead the country in job creation because companies know they can find educated and highly skilled workers here."
