Arne Duncan Joins Brookings Institution as a Fellow

By Alyson Klein — April 22, 2016 1 min read

Former U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan has joined the Brookings Institution, a think tank, as a nonresident senior fellow in the Governance Studies program at the Brown Center on Education Policy.

That means he’ll be participating in education-related events—and yes, blogging! Duncan’s analysis and opinion pieces will appear on the Brown Center Chalkboard, the Institution’s edu-policy blog.

This isn’t Duncan’s only gig since stepping down from the helm of the Education Department at the end of 2015. He recently announced that he will be a managing partner at the Emerson Collective working with disconnected youth, including high school dropouts and those with criminal records, in his native Chicago.
