Shutdown leaves hollow staffing at education department

from Education Week

Until Oct. 1, Jenelle Leonard served as the director of school support and rural programs within the U.S. Department of Education. Then the federal government shut down, leaving 4,000 of the department's workers, including Ms. Leonard, without a paycheck. What about Laura G. Johns, senior program advisor for the Office of Educational Technology? And Samuel Lopez, education program specialist at the office of English Language Acquisition? Yep, them too. Most of the Education Department's phone lines now end up giving callers the same message: "There's a temporary shutdown of the U.S. government due to a lapse in appropriations. I will respond to your message as soon as possible after the temporary shutdown ends." more
