Margaret Spellings, appointed to replace Rod Paige as Education secretary, isn’t an advocate of school choice, conservatives fear. Eduwonk breaks the story on Spellings’ debut. Go to Eduwonk too for links to news stories on Spellings. When I tried to go to the New York Times, I froze my mother’s computer. (I think it’s the computer, not a statement on Mainstream Media.)
I’m visiting my parents for a few days. My father’s had a mild stroke. It’s not too bad. But it would have been nice to skip the whole thing. So don’t expect first-class blogging.
