They were encouraged to blog about it, and the two became a viral sensation...

Are they really 'putting students first'? (02/23/11)
To the Editor: "Putting Students First." This is the catch phrase Gov. Daniels and Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Bennett are using to promote their expansive legislation that will all but destroy public education.
