Over at Trail Guide, the Los Angeles Times' blog counting us down to the 2016 presidential election, there's a recap of something from Wednesday's education forum in New Hampshire that made fewer headlines: Republicans discussing their favorite teachers.
"Scott Walker said he recently visited Plainfield, Iowa, where he met with his third-grade teacher, Betty Balsley. 'She really cared for me. She showed this emotional attachment, which is really important in elementary school -- that feeling that I like school because I like my teacher, and that's what Mrs. Balsley did to me. In doing that, it offered her the opportunity to inspire us, not just to want to do better in school but to want to do better in life.'
