House education committee chair George Miller has requested that EdSec Spellings appear to explain the whole student lending / Reading First mess (see PDF here) -- and she has (reportedly) agreed to show up on the 10th. It seemed like it was bound to happen eventually, given all that’s going on. But it isn’t going to be pretty, given the mood of things and recent performances by other Cabinet members. Thanks to a friend for letting me know. Exclusive, I think.
