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.

Patronizing?
Autocratic?
Overbearing?
Smooth talk now substitutes for substance and honest listening.

We have a Secretary who never worked in a school.

How did that happen?
