In it, but not of it. TPM DC
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."
