Acknowledging a need for more input from school leaders on education policy, U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan has announced plans to launch a principal-ambassador fellowship next fall.

The Department of Education now has a teaching ambassador fellowship that employs teachers for a year to provide classroom expertise to federal staff members about education initiatives.

Officials are still thinking through the details of a new ambassador program and are open to suggestions, Mr. Duncan said. Some fellows might be employed for a full year by the federal government, while others could be paid stipends to consult from their home schools.
