In the front-page article on July 26, Gov. Paul LePage takes liberties with a report regarding our educational system and lambastes everyone in education with a convenient set of mistruths and false interpretations of data.

This is not as bad as his recent attack on the IRS workers, but is another situation where he shows true ignorance and bias. He states that Maine people are looked down upon in our nation.

I think the only national thought about Maine is bewilderment concerning our governor.

Who else in our state can do so poorly at his or her job and not be fired? Isn’t it time we look into that?
