Useless Pre-Holiday Conference Week -- Spellings Attends Everything
Not only does ECS still exist for some reason, it's even having a conference. Held in Austin this year, it features EdSec Spellings (natch!), plus Kansas Gov Sebelius. Details here. Not to be outdone, the Aspen Institute is having its annual ideas festival. Spellings will be there, too, conversing with Eli Broad about the state of American education. Details here.
