Charter School Smarick Wins White House Fellows Spot

AndySmarick.gif
Not to be outdone by Michelle Rhee's splashy entry into the public sector last week, charter advocate and political up-and-comer Andy Smarick has just been named one of the 15 White House Fellows for 2007-2008. Under the program, folks from outside the federal government apply to work in the White House for a year. And everyone knows that fellows run things in DC. Lots of future stars have participated. Not that Andy isn't already a star among charteristas. Most recently, he's been COO for the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools. Congrats, condolences, etc.
