WSJ, again, bashes Crist



The Wall Street Journal editorial board has been no fan of our populist governor, particularly his approach to the property insurance crisis. Now, it's hitting him for failing to appeal a Florida District Court ruling against an initiative to expand charter school authorizations in the state.

As Chicago schools chief, Arne Duncan has found innovative ways to skirt the restrictive cap on the number of charter schools that can operate in Illinois, thus expanding opportunities for low-income kids. So it's instructive to contrast Mr. Duncan's can-do attitude with that of Florida Governor Charlie Crist, whose inaction last week handed a victory to opponents of school choice.
