Hear the acting U.S. Secretary of Education John B. King, Jr.'s speech from Education Week’s Leaders To Learn From event in Washington, D.C. on March 11, 2016. King discusses his background as a student growing up in New York City, saying, “Teachers could have looked at me and said, ‘Here’s an African American Latino male student with a family in crisis, what chance does he have?’” He also outlines the current challenges and opportunities facing schools, districts, and the federal department of education in the wake of the passage of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). After his remarks, he joined Education Week‘s Editor-in-Chief Virginia B. Edwards for a discussion of where the Obama administration’s final year of K-12 education priorities will lead.
