Dallas Mayoral Debate: “What to do about Education?” VIDEO

My contribution to the Dallas mayoral debate tonight on TXA 21 was to challenge the candidates to be “visionary” when it comes to the issue of education.  Even though the mayor’s office has no direct influence over the Dallas Independent School District, there are things that city government can do to improve the quality of education.  This, I think, is an issue where the person in the job needs to be “the ideas guy,” and not just say “well, that’s DISD’s problem, we can’t deal with that.”

Watch and feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below:
Oh, and check this out. Our friends at CBS 11 put together some cool “wordclouds” to show you what the candidates were focused on in their responses to our questions.

UPDATE: I was on CBS 11 this afternoon to recap the debate and talk about which of the candidates may now have the edge.
