Higher Standards?


Joel Klein appeared on NY1's Inside City Hall program tonight and endorsed Caroline Kennedy for US senate. In so saying, he claimed that Ms. Kennedy has "a wealth of experience in terms of thinking about education."

HUH?

The man who talks endlessly about higher standards now considers thinking about education the same as having experience in education? Of course, we must remember the source. Klein is a man who spent about 5 minutes in front of a classroom and still thought himself qualified to be Secretary of Education.
