Sam R. Hall: Gunn faces more choices with education committee vacancies

When House Speaker Philip Gunn removed Rep. Linda Whittington from the House Education Committee, he did so under the guise of promoting her to vice chairman of the Tourism Committee.

The truth? Whittington, D-Schlater, was the leading opponent to charter schools. More importantly, she held together a bi-partisan opposition that killed charter school bills in committee. Gunn, R-Clinton, decided he would remove the roadblock, and he did. Now, a charter school bill is likely to make it to the House floor for a vote.
