Mo Money Mo Problems: House Bills 1400 and 1401 (Guest Post: Rep. John Montgomery, HD62)

NOTE: Rep. John Montgomery was elected to represent HD-62 (Comanche, think "West of Lawton") in 2014 and re-elected this past November. I consider him a friend to #oklaed and a decent guy all 'round. He's also unexpectedly amusing when he's mocking me privately on social media. Like, he's REALLY good at it. That's rare.

Not the mocking part - I get that a LOT. But being good at it - THAT'S a gift.

I’m not known for the sunshine I spread or my rainbow-themed unicorn farm. I’m surrounded by edu-bloggers in Oklahoma and beyond who are both smarter and more experienced than myself, and I’m under no illusions about the role I play.

But I do believe in being pragmatic. Having spent most of 2016 burning energy I didn’t have promoting the so-called ‘Teacher Caucus’ and related issues in #OKElections16, and having had slightly less than zero impact (the pro-education newbies who won were the handful I’d never gotten around to writing about), I’d like to try to find approaches that might, you know… work.
