The secretary met with students of the consolidated Charles B. Murphy and Gulfview elementary schools, which now hold classes on Hancock Middle School grounds in trailers after their schools were wiped out by Hurricane Katrina. She read “Alphabet Adventure” to about 40 first- and second-graders and addressed students in the gymnasium.

First lady Laura Bush had intended to accompany Spellings on the trip, but canceled late Tuesday night. A statement released from her office said Bush, who has made 16 trips to the Gulf Coast since the storm, would reschedule.
