Kathy Cox’s turn to see what the stimulus offers

First the mayor, then the governor, now the state school superintendent.

Kathy Cox is scheduled to be the latest Georgia official to road trip to Washington for a lecture on the downstream effects of the economic stimulus, says my AJC colleague Bob Keefe.

According to the White House, Cox is among school superintendents from around the country who are scheduled to meet Wednesday with Vice President Joe Biden — the new point man for economic stimulus programs — as well as his wife, former teacher Jill Biden, and U.S. Department of Education Secretary Arne Duncan.

Last week, Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin and her colleagues from around the country came to Washington for economic stimulus details. Over the weekend Gov. Sonny Perdue and other governors were in town.

School superintendents apparently rank lower than mayors and governors. While Franklin and Perdue met with President Barack Obama at the White House, the superintendents meeting with the vice president is next door at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building.
