Education Secretary Announces The Obvious

Acknowledging that most of the billions appropriated for education in the economic stimulus package will go to shore up education budget shortfalls in the 50 states, Education Secretary Arne Duncan said thousands of teaching jobs were saved by the measure at a Brookings Institution panel discussion Monday. Department adviser Mike Casserly said, "For those of you who may be looking for how school districts are spending all of their stimulus money ... you are not going to be able to find it yet because it just does not exist at the local levels." So much for transparency and accountability.
