What you’re smelling right now is a breath of fresh air. It’s crisp and full of hope. It’s right around the corner.
I can’t promise you that next week all your public education dreams will come true. It won’t happen in a month or a year, either. It’ll take some time – and I assume that I won’t get everything I want out of the Hofmeister administration. Neither will you. Honestly, Joy Hofmeister probably won’t get everything she wants out of her time in office either. That’s not how this works.
Still, I’m looking forward to day one. We’ve waited four long years for this. Breathe in. Breathe out.
