Questions for the Secretary

By Christina A. Samuels — February 25, 2009 1 min read

Quick! The Secretary of Education is having a conference call with reporters tomorrow (Thursday) at 1:30 p.m. In the unlikely event that I’m able to get a question in, what are some things you want to know?

Friend-of-the-blog Jim Gerl has a great set of questions up on his own site, but they are detailed and unlikely to be answered in this format. But I’m sure I can get an interview at a later date, and this can help steer my coverage.

UPDATE: As I might have predicted, the department wasn’t prepared today to talk about special education. Instead the bulk of the conversation was devoted to the changes the department has proposed for Pell Grants. (See Politics K-12 blog here)

I appreciate these ideas, though--please keep ‘em coming, and I’ll push for answers.
