Arne Duncan's never even been a teacher

I don't think it's right that our nation's education secretary has never been a classroom teacher.Am I the only one?

Pamela,

I agree with you. You're not the only one.

It seems to be much more of a political position than an educational one. He would appear to be on par with the qualifications of the past several Secretar(ies?) of Education. Whether that par is what we should except from the position, however, is another question.
