Republican gubernatorial candidate Matt Blunt is formally outlining his proposals for education. And, the proposals include a pledge to put an end to education cuts. Secretary of State Matt Blunt wants to see more money put into the classrooms and less spent on what he calls Jefferson City bureaucracy. He’s reittering his promise to make sure that money approved by the Legislature for public schools makes it to the schools. He says it’s wrong to use kids for political purposes, turning them into political pawns. Blunt has criticized Governor Bob Holden for withholding close to $200-Million that had been approved for public schools. The Governor eventually released all of the withheld funds.
