Education Secretary Spellings At Congressional Black Caucus Education Summit

Posted by DallasBlackBlog on Wednesday, August 1, 2007

Following her participation today in the Congressional Black Caucus Education Summit, U.S. Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings made the following statement:

Today, I was honored to join the Congressional Black Caucus for a vital discussion on improving education, particularly for America’s low-income and minority students. And I applaud Congressmen Bobby Scott and Danny Davis for their commitment to educating our nation’s young people.

No Child Left Behind has been a game-changer for American education. Gone are the days when kids were moved from grade to grade without holding schools accountable for their progress. Today, thanks to this law, America’s minority and low-income students are visible and accounted for ― and most importantly, they’re doing better in school and the achievement gap is closing.
