This is so delicious it's hard to believe it's true. According to the Tribune's Washington DC blog, President Bush is coming to Chicago on Monday to celebrate NCLB's many achievements -- and enjoy some pizza. How this decision got made, I have no idea. I guess Chicago has become sort of mecca for NCLB implementation? It's going to be a week after the Iowa caucus and the day before the New Hampshire primary. The White House press secretary joked that the motivation for the visit was to have some deep dish.
Thanks to a reader for passing this along. I'll try and find out what school they're going to do the event at. Or maybe someone has already heard whisperings about a VIP coming by on Monday?
