Here's the video clip of the segment I taped with Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings. The DOE had sent me a list of the questions she was going to ask, so I actually sat down and carefully constructed responses to each one. My answers were all subtle and respectful, but not beating around the bush about the issues. Or beating around the Bush.
She ended up not asking any of the questions, and then they edited down the interview from 20 minutes to about 5 (which I was aware of beforehand) and chose to use my worst answer. Because I'm an expert on how to get teachers into hard to staff schools in the inner city. Oh well. I guess the consolation is that hardly anyone has ever heard of this show...
Oh, and by the way, the books on the shelves behind us are just facades. Interesting.
