I had the occasion to receive a press release last night from the U.S. Department of Education, with the ominous title "U.S. EDUCATION SECRETARY APPOINTS 16-MEMBER COUNCIL TO ADVISE ON STATE STANDARDS, ASSESSMENTS, ACCOUNTABILITY SYSTEMS."
Perusing the list of appointments I came across the name of Carl Cohn, former Superintendent of the Long Beach and San Diego Unified School Districts, who is now identified as "Distinguished Leader in Residence, College of Education, San Diego State University."
So that's my new goal - I want to become a "Distinguished Leader in Residence." And for some reason, I don't think that's how my wife and kids refer to me. Even behind my back.
