Does the public know that our current Secretary of Education, in charge of the whole ball of wax, not only never taught a day in the Public School system, that he never even attended a public school as a child?
How can he (or all but one modern Secretary, since the position was reinstated under President Jimmy Carter), dictate policy for a profession which he has no practical experience at at all at?
Terrrell Bell, under the Reagan Administration, is the only Secretary of Education in modern American history who ever taught in public schools. One Secretary, out of nine... and we wonder what is wrong... perhaps Professional Educators (not "Education Experts") should write Education Law.* Last updated by: backbencher on 9/16/2011 @ 4:45 PM *
