To the Editor:

In your article "Needs of 'Whole Child' Factor in ESEA Renewal" (April 28, 2010), U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan is quoted as saying at a forum on health sponsored by the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, “If our children aren’t safe, they can’t learn.” He continued, “If our children aren’t fed, they can’t learn. If our children can’t see the blackboard, they can’t learn.”

Can anyone show where Mr. Duncan’s rhetoric is reflected in the criteria he and his department set for making awards from the federal Race to the Top Fund?
