Teachers Unheard in Meeting With Duncan?

A group of accomplished teachers representing Anthony Cody's Teachers' Letters to Obama campaign got a chance to express their concerns and ideas about federal education policy in a conference call with Secretary of Education Arne Duncan and colleagues yesterday. Unfortunately, from the teachers point of view, it turned out to be a frustrating experience. Both Cody and Nancy Flanagan have posted accounts of the call. Definitely worth a read.

UPDATE 5/26: Interesting: Cody gets a callback.
