Under Secretary Tucker to Leave Department of Education

There’s an announcement on the Department of Education web-site today that Under Secretary Sara Martinez Tucker is leaving her position, effective November 21.  The press release doesn’t state why she’s leaving – only that she will be “returning home to California.” 

Tucker’s responsibilities, which include implementing policy to make higher education more accessible and affordable, will be taken over by Kent Talbert, currently the Department’s general counsel.

Seems like strange timing considering that the administration is about to change hands and Martinez Tucker has been quoted as recently as November 10th on the bailout to student loan lenders.
