Mike Petrilli is thinking ahead over at Flypaper. He’s trying to figure out who the next secretary of education might be under a McCain or Obama administration.
He’s got some good guesses but I would only add — Please, let it not be Huckabee.
Take it from an Arkansan. Unless you like huge spending increases with little achievement improvement, hostility to vouchers and charters, consolidation of small school districts, and an odd interest in music education which he tried to promote in a conference call with country musicians who all learned music in church and not in school… Huckabee wouldn’t be your pick.
