The Spellings Report: Talking Back To Teachers

With school starting-up (or already started) around the country, we thought that now would be a good time to remind teachers that U.S. Education Secretary Margaret Spellings has been fielding your questions. (To Her credit, She actually "answered" our question last year.)

You can ask Secretary Spellings yours by completing this easy-to-use
Question Submission Form.

No fair asking Washington's Goddess of Accountability when She's going to advocate the passage of legislation that would actually require students to attempt their assignments, (or get the "F" that they deserve) although She'll be more than happy to explain (
again) why public school educators are accountable for student progress even when students don't bother to attempt to do their assignments or cannot read, write, or calculate in English (at grade-level) within one year of their arrival in this country.
Entries for this week's Carnival of Education are due tonight. Get details here and see our latest EduPosts there.
