Education Sec Bemoans Inability to Use Own Website
Education Secretary (and Jeopardy loser) Margaret Spellings:
"The absence of information means we can't answer basic questions families have during the college selection process," Spellings said. "For example, how long will it take to get a degree? Will this institution prepare me for the field I want to work in? And how much is this education really going to cost? When my daughter applied to college two years ago, I found it challenging to get the answers I needed. And I'm the secretary of education!"
The fine folks at Inside Higher Ed found a great, free website that offers all that information -- and more! It's called COOL, and it's run by the Department of Education!
So, is it too late to just appoint Michael McKean Education Secretary, or what?
