Duncan to Visit New Ed. Chairman’s District

Secretary of Education Arne Duncan is clearly not kidding around about wanting to get a bipartisan reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act done this year. In fact, he’s so committed, he’s willing to brave Minnesota in the middle of January.

Duncan is slated to appear with Rep. John Kline, R-Minn., the newly-minted chairman of the House Education and the Workforce Committee, at Crystal Lake Elementary School in Lakeville, Minn., next Friday. This marks the first time he’s traveled to Kline’s district.

The high temperature is supposed to climb to 10 degrees. So I hope Duncan’s packing some of those extra long woolen sweaters, along with a copy of the administration’s ESEA blueprint.
