Teachers: Have your voice heard

The Culpeper Star-Exponent is looking for public school teachers who have questions for Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings.

Many teachers are confused about the federal "No Child Left Behind" Act. They have concerns about the ways their schools are implementing it. They may have ways to improve it. Or they have questions about other parts of federal education policy and funding that affect how they teach.

Media General News Service, the Washington bureau that writes for this newspaper, has arranged an interview with Spellings early in August. We are inviting teachers to provide the questions. National correspondent Gil Klein will ask as many questions as time permits. Then he will write a story based on her responses.

A full transcript of the interview will be provided on this newspaper's Web site at Washington Dateline and online at www.MediaGeneralNews.com.

Teachers should e-mail questions to gklein@mediageneral.com. Please put “Question for Spellings” in the subject line.

Questioners should include their names, addresses, phone numbers and school names so that they can be reached to clarify a question or to arrange for a photographer to take a picture for the story.
