Romney Campaign Announces 'Educators For Romney'

Laugh of the Day.

By Alyson Klein

GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney already has a team of education advisers that includes some prominent names. Now his campaign has assembled a new posse of "national education leaders" who will "lead an effort to coordinate support for Mitt Romney and his bold education reforms that will put students first," in press-release speak.

We'll have to see what that actually translates to in terms of the real campaign, but everyone on the list is from a swing state—Virginia is especially well represented.

And the list includes a lot of state education board members. There are also a bunch of state lawmakers who have worked as classroom teachers or administrators.

The group will be led by former U.S. Secretary of Education Rod Paige, who headed the department during President George W. Bush's first term. (He was also on the original list of Romney edu-visers.)

Here's a look at the rest of the team. . . .

Education Week doesn't like me to post whole articles. If you're dying to see the rest of the team, go to the hot link below. I figure knowing that Rod Paige will lead the team is entertainment enough.

Kudos to Alyson Klein, who did provide some info on members of "the team."
