S.C.'s Former Ed. Chief to Lead Consumer Product Safety Commission


Politics K-12 imagines that the communication between the President and former South Carolina education chief Inez Tenenbaum regarding her nomination to lead the Consumer Product Safety Commission read something like this:

Dear Inez Tenenbaum,

Thanks so much for serving on my education advisory team during the campaign, and especially for being an early supporter when practically everybody else thought Hillary was going to win.

Sorry I selected Arne to head up the education department, and not you. His jumpshot is dramatically better than yours.

But as a token of my appreciation, you get to make sure that Barbie's hair is flame resistant.

Inez Tenenbaum did an excellent job for South Carolina, and by all accounts, she will maintain the same high quality standards in her new position. Personally, I especially wish her luck in dealing with a CPSIA debate that has gotten increasingly out of control. http://tinyurl.com/d65yvn In any case, I feel safer knowing Ms. Tenenbaum will soon be the new CPSC head.

I guess this is a blog, but i thought EdWeek was a newspaper?
