Grading Carly Fiorina on K-12

GOP hopeful Carly Fiorina, one member of the relatively large contingent of political outsiders running for president, appeared at yesterday’s New Hampshire Education Summit, where she praised school vouchers, attacked Race to the Top, and generally hit all the Republican talking points.

But it’s not the general arguments she made that were notable — it’s the way she backed them up.
