Paige-Watkins Interview 'Very Productive'
MIRS, August 29, 2002

U.S. Department of Education Secretary Rod Paige and state Superintendent Tom Watkins had what was described as a “very productive” one-on-one meeting on Wednesday in Detroit.

Paige praised Michigan for being one of the states to achieve two federal milestones — being one of the first states to file its consolidated grant application under the new federal “No Child Left Behind” act and one of the first states to receive its Reading First dollars.

Watkins, a Democrat, and Paige, appointed by a Republican president, also parted with the understanding the door was open for one to always call the other and that the two will continue to talk more freely in the future.

“The understanding here is that education isn't a partisan subject,” said T.J. Bucholz, Department of Education spokesman. “You want to make sure the spirit of the law, that no child is left behind, is put into place.”
