A Primer On Sharpton

Posted By Malcolm A. Kline On September 17, 2010 @ 8:45 am In Faculty Lounge | No Comments

Inquiring minds want to know if the U. S. Department of Education considered an Al Sharpton rally an educational experience. On September 2, 2010, Americans for Limited Government [1] “filed an official Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the U.S. Department of Education [2] … related to Secretary Arne Duncan’s well publicized efforts to encourage attendance at a rally by Al Sharpton on August 28, 2010.

“The FOIA asks that the Department provide copies of any records that exist in any of the following categories and that were created on or after January 1, 2010:

  1. All records of communications and the communications themselves between any Department of Education official and personnel from the organization National Action Network;
  2. All records of communications and the communications themselves between any Department of Education official and Rev. Al Sharpton; and
  3. All records of communications and the communications themselves between any Department of Education official and any person representing Rev. Al Sharpton.”

The Department of Education has 20 days to respond from the date of the request.

Malcolm A. Kline is the Executive Director of Accuracy in Academia [3].
