Haslam’s lack of leadership was also evident elsewhere, notably on the education front. One could argue that a bill that’s making its way through committees that would close the records of teacher evaluations is good for education. However, I’m not one who is going to make that argument. The governor did get them to slow down action on Knoxville Sen. Stacey Campfield’s so-called “Don’t Say Gay” bill, but in its place lawmakers took up an abstinence education bill. That’s a fine thing. However, it fails to take into consideration the realities of the teenage world. Somebody really needs to be talking to kids about sex. The legislative leadership’s goal is to finish the session, the second and last in this version of the Legislature by the end of April. There are several things in process, yet none of them are anything that we could hold up to other states as an example of the way things should be done.
