Secretary Arne Duncan Takes Listening Tour to Detroit

Secretary of Education Arne Duncan is in Detroit today for his next stop on his listening tour on education reform.

The secretary will be meeting with Michigan Governor Jennifer M. Granholm, Detroit Mayor Dave Bing, union leaders and district leaders. He also will visit Cody High School, where he’ll talk with students.

The Detroit trip is the secretary’s second stop that will eventually take him to 15 states. What he learns on the tour will inform his ideas on his proposal to reauthorize the No Child Left Behind Act.
