The EdSec Lays Down the Law

The Secretary of Education:

We need to stop making excuses and get on with the business of fixing our schools. If a school is bad and can't be changed, reconstitute it or close it down. If a principal is slow to get the message, find strength in a new leader. If teachers are burned out, counsel them to improve or leave the profession. If laws need to be changed, get on with it.

--Richard Riley, 1997, EdSec 1993- 2001.

The name doesn't even ring a bell.
