State schools Supt. Tom Luna issued this statement today on the failure of a recall drive against him over his “Students Come First” school-reform laws: “Students Come First has always been about reforming education so we can educate more students at a higher level with limited resources. Opponents of the laws have tried to make it personal. Reforming education has never been about me; it’s about giving our students more opportunities. Our focus and priority has been and will continue to be implementation of the laws.” You can read my full story here at spokesman.com.
