None of the [school] [bus](http://www.nypress.com/blogx/display_blog.cfm?bid=80993290&day=29&startmonth=1&startyear=2007) [craziness](http://www.nypress.com/blogx/display_blog.cfm?bid=71847846&day=12&startmonth=2&startyear=2007) and [calls for the firing](http://www.nypress.com/blogx/display_blog.cfm?bid=50660016) of Schools Chancellor Joel Klein appear to have made a dent in Washington. According to Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings (pictured), New York schoolchildren are lucky to have him.


Spellings visited PS/IS 210 in Washington Heights today with Klein. While there, she took the time to let anyone who cared to listen just how awesome she thinks Klein is and how great of a job he's done with the City's schools.


"You all are so lucky to have a chancellor, a leader in this community who is so committed to you all, the young people of this City, that he would give his very strong intellectual and leadership skills...this is a man who could be doing anything, and he is a person who is serving our young people, and the young people of the City, and we all owe him a huge debt of gratitude," said Spellings, who asked for the crowd to give a round of applause to Klein.


Surely those parents who have lost bus service for their children would like to give Klein something.
