Worth noting...

...the only candidate (for either party) that gives a crap about education in this race is Bill Richardson. He mentioned it three separate times tonight in the debate, whereas nobody else could be bothered to mention it at all. Richardson talked about teacher pay, No Child Left Behind, not just "making schools better". Even though he's not going anywhere, Governor Bill Richardson is my man for that reason.

Worse still, on the post-debate network/ Facebook poll asking "which topic do you wish had been discussed more in the debate", education wasn't even listed as an option. Why should the candidates care about education if the media won't challenge them on it.
