This is not the job I would want. Ken Meyer is a "bigwig from Washington" who gets to travel around the country explaining and defending No Child Left Behind for the Department of Education. Meyer and other representatives from DOE must face real people in open meetings and listen to what folks outside the infamous Beltway have to say about federal education policies. This is in contrast to W who offers canned speeches in front of a televison-friendly backdrop with a hand-picked audience primed to cheer at the applause lines.
