As Feared, The Senate Stabs Parents In The Back. John King Confirmed.

Over the weekend, I mused on whether or not the Senate would stab parents and students in the back again by confirming John King as Ed Secretary.

Yesterday, that musing became reality.

The vote was close, but Sen. Alexander got his way.

Daily Signal reported:

The Senate voted 49-40 Monday evening to confirm John B. King Jr., President Barack Obama’s nominee, as secretary of education.

A total of 11 senators did not vote on King’s confirmation, while those who voted against him cited his loyalty to the system and support for Common Core education standards.

The Daily Signal also lists the roll call vote results. Both NC Senators voted NAY.
