A national education advisor was in Lexington this morning to bring attention to a job well done at two schools.

Assistant Deputy Secretary for Innovation and Improvement Jim Shelton visited Sayre School as a part of the department of education's "Back-to-School Bus Tour."

Shelton praised Sayre for its use of technology. He also went to Picadome Elementary focusing on the foreign language program.

Shelton says one of the goals of the tour is to get communities talking about school reform, college opportunities, and the connection between education and jobs. Another goal of the tour was to highlight schools that are setting a good example for others. Shelton was also visiting Berea College.
