Farewell to State EdWatch's Lesli Maxwell

As she has just reported over at her own blog, my colleague and fellow blogger Lesli Maxwell is bidding adieu to Education Week. Today is her last day.

Her work has intersected often with federal policy and politics. She has doggedly tracked the $4 billion being spent to turn around the nation's worst-performing schools, a priority for EdSec Arne Duncan. We teamed up to predict winners in Rounds 1 and 2 of Race to the Top. And, I think her question about charter schools was the one that most riled up Duncan when he did an hour-long interview with EdWeek awhile back.

Her next adventure will take her to Maryland's Montgomery County Public Schools (which has, incidentally, not signed on to the state's Race to the Top application), where she'll be a senior communications specialist. Or, in other words, she'll be the spokesperson for the district.

Bye, Lesli, and good luck!
