Condoleezza Rice: A leader in educational policy?

The recent appointment of Condoleezza Rice (Ph.D, Political Science, former US Secretary of State) as chair of the Foundation for Excellence in Education shows that necessary qualifications for positions in educational policy still include (1) no actual experience teaching in public schools (2) no record of contributing to or even having read educational research.  Dr. Rice joins Arne Duncan, Margaret Spellings, Lamar Alexander, David Coleman and others from both political parties in being completely unqualified for positions of leadership in educational policy.
