Shortly after Judge Hobgood ruled that June Atkinson had the constitutional authority to run the Department of Public Instruction, Sen Tony Rand (D-Fayetteville)stated that the leftist legislature would have the political will to make changes to the current system. These "changes" would clear up, what Sen. Rand referred to as a "convoluted system."
The convolution in the system comes from, in part, the fact that the Governor appoints their own official to run DPI in order to maintain control over the political boondoggle that is public education. How would Sen. Rand fix this issue?
Red Clay has been doing this for awhile, and as such we are actually fluent in liberal. We humbly offer a translation of Sen. Rand's comments for your perusal.
"We took a beating today in court. Our horse didn't win, and so we are now prepared to propose
a constitutional amendment that would chuck Article 3 Section 7 of the state constitution, and replace that elected office with a political appointee that will do what the legislature wants."
In summation, Sen. Rand wants to prevent voters from electing someone that they can't control. Democracy and the North Carolina Constitution has simply become too cumbersome for the 22+ year veteran of the Senate.
