Jim Kane serves as the Secretary of Health and Education from 1999 to 2007.


In 2002, Sam Seaborn wanted Kane to read a statement when he found out that the United States was trailing over 18 countries in reading and math.[1]

In May 2003, Kane was present at an emergency Cabinet meeting where President Josiah Bartlet temporarily gave up his power to Acting President Glen Allen Walken.[2]

In late 2006, C.J. Cregg suggested that Kane could help President-elect Matt Santos and upcoming First Lady Helen Santos find a good Washington, DC school for their children.[3]
