Winston, former Clinton official, will lead transition team: source

Image: winwithassociates.comJudith Winston, the former general counsel to the Department of Education under President Clinton, will lead an education transition team for Barack Obama, a source familiar with the transition told me tonight.

The team will be part of the “agency review” effort, which examines each agency and presents the findings to the new administration, once that is assembled. Seems unclear as of yet whether for the U.S. Department of Education that includes both policy and management issues, or just management. I suggested earlier that Winston’s experience is more in the structural/management area.

Flypaper, the blog of the Fordham Foundation, first reported Winston’s role.

I sent a request for comment to the Obama transition team and have not heard back.
