AND I’LL HANG AROUND AS LONG AS YOU WILL LET ME
AND I NEVER MINDED STANDIN’ IN THE RAIN
BUT YOU DON’T HAVE TO CALL ME DARLIN’, DARLIN’
YOU NEVER EVEN CALLED ME BY MY NAME.
According to Mike Petrilli at the Fordham wing-nut sanctuary, here is how it’s going for Ed Secretary.
He says it is bad news that Linda Darling-Hammond is heading the education group in the Obama transition team. She is, says Petrilli, the darling of the teacher unions. Is “darling” an elected position?
They say that Inez Tenenbaum, former state superintendent of education in South Carolina, is now a front runner. According to Petrilli her selection would be a victory for the NEA. She must be another of our darlings. Do we have two darlings? Is Linda Darling-Hammond more darling than our darling Tenenbaum?
Petrilli reports that their comrades-in-arms over at Democrats for Education Reform are pushing Arne Duncan. He’s no Darling-Hammond. No darling at all.
