The New Oxymoron: A Non-Sham Secretary of Education

The Washington Post today debunks the supposed stellar achievements of the Chicago schools system -the former domain of Obama’s Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan.

Earlier in this century, the supposed triumphs of the Houston school system – the main bragging point of Bush’s Education Secretary Rod Paige – also collapsed like a house of cards.

It’s not surprising that presidents would continue nominating bogus saviors to be Secretary of Education.

But why in Hades would anyone expect people like Paige or Duncan to do anything different nationally than what they did locally?
