A national education adviser was in Lexington Thursday morning to bring attention to a job well done.

Assistant Deputy Secretary for Innovation and Improvement Jim Shelton visited Sayre School and Picadome Elementary as a part of the Department of Education's "Back to School Bus Tour."

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 was to highlight schools that are setting a good example which is why Shelton was at Sayre for use of technology and Picadome for the foreign language program.

He was also scheduled to visit Berea College later in the day.  That visit was not open to the media.

He told ABC 36 News he was observing how the schools taught academics in addition to character development.
