I don’t think Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings really wrote this.
BTW, McSweeney’s is an uber-hip publishing company (founded by Dave Eggers and supported by everyone from Breakthrough teacher Daniel Handler to David Sedaris) that supports the growing network of “826” centers around the country. At 826 Valencia (SF), 826 LA, 826 NYC, 826 Michigan (Ann Arbor), 826 Boston, and 826 Chicago, kids can come in to these totally fun environments to receive free writing tutoring and workshops from talented, dedicated volunteers. If you’re near an 826 (and you’re not already working at a Breakthrough site), I urge you to sign up. Totally Breaky.
