Throwing Bones

Faced with a revolt against the absurdly inflexible rules and regulations invented to accompany NCLB/Helter-Skelter, the new Ed Secretary has been smiling and throwing bones but making no changes worth writing home about.

Smooth talk now substitutes for substance and honest listening.

We have a Secretary who never worked in a school.

How did that happen?
