The Spellings Report: Where's Her Accountability?

Heh. The Queen Of All Testing U.S. Education Secretary Margaret Spellings, who is so quick to hold schools 100% accountable for the academic success of 100% of America's children, (while saying nothing about the need for parents and students to also be responsible for at least making an effort to achieve their own success) went before Congress the other day and showed herself to be distinctly reluctant to accept any accountability whatsoever for her department's refusal to actively exercise its oversight responsibility in the growing student-loan scandal.

In our opinion, Spellings is just one more of the hoards hordes of unelected and all-powerful Washington bureaucrats who are eager to impose one standard of "accountability" for those of us in the "field," while setting a much lower performance standard for herself and those who work in the plush office suites of the Nation's Capital Babylon-on-the-Potomac.

No surprises there.
