How far behind is Trump in staffing the Education Department compared to Obama?
from Education Week
President Donald Trump has finally, finally started to nominate people to fill the top political ranks at the U.S. Department of Education. Recently, for example, the White House announced its pick for deputy secretary (former South Carolina state chief Mick Zais) and for assistant secretary for career, technical, and adult education (Michigan state Rep. Tim Kelly.) But the Trump team is still really behind the eight-ball when it comes to staffing 400 Maryland Ave. How far behind? We went back and looked to see when the Obama administration named its picks for some of the agency's top players.
