At least no one will be able to accuse the California School Boards Association of hypocrisy.
Association members, who spent most of 2009 loudly criticizing legislative decisions to cut spending on public schools, have decided that no lawmaker is worthy of their annual "Legislator of the Year" award. They decided not to give out the award this year.
In a statement issued this after, President-elect Frank Pugh had this to say: "For crying out loud, schools have been cut by $2,100 per student. We'd be nuts to present this award to anybody in a year when the cuts are going to have detrimental effects on an entire generation of students. We just have to draw the line somewhere."
