Rumors On Possible Appointments

Arne Duncan had glowing praise for Wendy Kopp, CEO and founder of Teach for America, and Jonathan H. Schnur, the co-founder of New Leaders for New Schools, in his confirmation hearing yesterday.

Sources have mentioned to me that they are hearing that both are being considered for top positions at Department of Education, along with Andrew Rotherham, a co-director of Education Sector and author of one of my favorite blogs, eduwonk. Sounds like Sherman Dorn is hearing the same thing.

Is this true? Well, it also sounds like the list is far from being finalized yet, and there certainly were a lot of names floated for Secretary of Education before Duncan finally emerged as the pick. So stay tuned, I guess.
