Arne Duncan: A Discussion with Students

C-SPAN hosted a discussion between students and Secretary of Education Arne Duncan this morning.

The topics covered a wide range, and there were questions asked of the students as well as Secretary Duncan.

I listened to much of it on C-SPAN radio, but plan to re-listen or watch on the Internet soon.

There was discussion about curriculum and local control. No Child left behind and state assessment tests were discussed.

My favorite comment from Arne Duncan involved whether a teacher that brought a student that was three grade levels behind in reading to one grade level behind in one year should be viewed as successful or a failure. Listen to the discussion. I wholeheartedly agree with Secretary Duncan on this one.
