Who Will Be the Next Obama's Secretary of Education?

There are a number of names being discussed for the Secretary of Education cabinet position. Caroline Kennedy is mentioned, and a number of other names including Linda Darling-Hammond, James Hunt and Janet Napolitano are part of a list compiled by Paul Basken for The Chronicle of Education.

Like President Obama, the next US Education Secretary is inheriting a mountain of problems. The long embattled No Child Left Behind Act, the Bush administration’s signature education agenda, is slated for serious revisions or a shallow grave. The country’s economic crisis has seen massive layoffs in large urban districts and state education agencies borrowing from savings to make payroll. In such dire economic times, Obama’s proposed additional $18 million per year for education may be a tough promise to keep.

Education, an issue that received little media attention during the campaign season, is nonetheless an important priority for the new Obama administration (discarted we first solve our economic battle).

Here’s the list of top contenders for the next Secretary of Education according to Ms. Leigh Hopkins.
