If you’ve been wanting to ask a question of the U.S. Department of Education’s Deputy Secretary for Rural Outreach, tomorrow is your chance.

John White will host the agency’s first rural forum on Twitter tomorrow at 3 p.m. The half-hour forum’s hashtag will be #EDRuralChat, and Twitter users can begin submitting questions today using that same hashtag.

U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan held the department’s first Twitter town hall event on Aug. 24, and thousands of Twitter users submitted #AskArne questions.

The Department of Education uses several Twitter accounts to share information and converse with the public. For general news and information, follow @usedgov. For up-to-date information on Duncan, follow @ArneDuncan.

I’ll do my best to tune in, so check back tomorrow for an update.
