I'm not a big fan of Secretary Spellings (U.S. Department of Education). But her comments yesterday in a speech on the Harvard campus resonated with me.

We often hear from parents that we don't really need to work on public school reform because "There's nothing wrong with my child's school." But the sad fact is, the majority of our public schools, especially our urban schools, have major isses.

Said Spellings, �Is our education system all it should be? Is it preparing all of our children for success in college and the workforce?� Spellings asked. �In all candor, the answer is no, not yet.�
