When interest groups wanted him to delay or make exceptions to the law’s requirement that high school students, starting in 2003, pass tests in English and math in order to graduate, Romney refused to back down. He threatened to cut off tens of millions of dollars in education funding to New Bedford when its mayor announced that the local high school would grant diplomas to all seniors, regardless of whether they passed the tests.

Under Romney’s watch, a science test was eventually added as a graduation requirement. And the bar for what counted as a passing score also rose.
“There’s no question that some of the things he wanted to do did not make it,” Peyser said. “But he did strengthen and affirm high standards in Massachusetts.”
Overall test scores grew incrementally during Romney’s tenure. The achievement of non-native English speakers — a demographic whose progress Romney targeted during his gubernatorial campaign against bilingual education — barely budged.

So far as I know, President Obama will only be involved in two debates. So it is not likely that he will lose three.

True enough

So to lose three he'd have to lose the next TWO

Which is where Jim came in with his post (assumed...)

And which he's unlikely to do (small point) but that's where the OP came in with his thread (assumed)!

Well, he (Obama) has no one to blame but himself, he was ill prepared and simply never took Romney seriously or to task, including all of Romneys flip flopping on critical issues. Romney during the debate became the conservative "moderate" of sorts and I think that would also worry the hardline republicans.

I hope you are correct. On another issue although the right doesn't mention it, Romney has pulled a fast one on the hard liners that nominated him, he has as some predicted flip flopped from the hard line conservative during the nomination process to now a R moderate in order to get the votes of those undecided independent voters, voters that would have never voted for the "other" Romney. These independents should be asking themselves, if I vote for Romney will he become the hard line conservative I don't want or the moderate conservative, no guarantee either way based on his flip flopping history.

Romney confused Obama - he confused the heck out of the GOP faithful (still does...) and he confused the polls!

He's 'confusing' ain't he

I think his look here is of shame. And he should be ashamed of what he has done to our country.
