Like summer colds and Zach Galifianakis comedies, school reformers come and go.
In this semi-regular post we will answer the question: What ever happened to…”
Today? What ever happened to Rod Paige?
Paige was an Education Secretary in the George W. Bush administration. He was the one before Maggie Spellings.
His fifteen minutes of fame resulted from two events.
He called the National Education Association “terrorists” shortly after 9/11.
And his Texas Miracle turned to shit when it turned out it was all based on phony numbers.
So? What ever happened to Rod Paige?
Mother Jones reports he has returned as an education adviser to the Romney campaign.
Good choice Mittens.
