Mitt Romney’s education record was mixed
Two major plans proved ineffective
Mitt Romney unveiled his plans for education reform in Massachusetts in typical corporate fashion while running for governor in 2002. In a PowerPoint presentation dubbed “K through Job: Remediate, Renovate, Innovate,” Romney campaigned on scrapping bilingual education in favor of immersing non-native English speakers in English-only classrooms. But in reality, few of Romney’s education proposals met with any success during his single term as governor. English immersion proved a disaster when most non-native English speakers floundered in regular classrooms.
