Deb Delisle; Assistant Secretary for Elementary and Secondary Education

On April 26, Deb Delisle, was confirmed as Assistant Secretary for Elementary and Secondary Education for the U.S. Department of Education. This is interesting and relevant (sorry for the small pun) to us as she was a Senior Fellow at the International Center for Leadership in Education (ICLE), which is the Bill Daggett group. As I have mentioned a number of times internally, the ICLE has become an important research and policy group on the federal level.
