Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The real improvements to education in Arkansas were accomplished under his predecessor, Democrat Dale Bumpers. Bumpers pushed through a tax increase that really paid dividends when agriculture boomed back then. Bumpers laid the financial foundation for a solid K-college education system in the state - brought Arkansas from the '30s to the '70s in four years. Too bad he never ran for president.
