"Awesome" Video of Duncan's Visit

Tuesday, May 18, 2010
I had the privilege of joining Education Secretary Arne Duncan this afternoon during a visit to Kings Collegiate Charter School. It’s a terrific school in Brownsville, Brooklyn that, as the Secretary pointed out, is one of the best middle schools in the state. He asked a class of fifth graders what makes their school so good.
