Ask the White House: Margaret Spellings

| 3 Comments

Taken from The White House's regular online chats feature, this transcript from the Feb. 3 discussion with Secretary Spellings highlights the education aspects of President Bush's 2006 State of the Union Address, including the American Competitiveness Initiative and the emphasis placed on math and science instruction. The initiative, Spellings writes, "will do for math and science what the No Child Left Behind Act did for reading--namely, train teachers in scientifically proven instructional methods."
