In this election season it's useful to remember the infamous moment during the primaries when Texas governor Rick Perry announced that if he became president "three departments of government would be gone of the first day". Of course everyone remembers that he couldn't remember the three he was planning to eliminate, a gaffe that ruined his campaign, but how many remember that "Education" was a department he did remember? My point (such as it is) is that MItt Romney if elected will pick up that cudgel despite his declaration during Wednesday's debate that he cares about education and about children with disabilities. Don't you believe it!
