Secretary Duncan launched the Listening and Learning Tour in May to get input from a broad group of stakeholders around federal education policy. To date, the tour has included stops in Colorado, Indiana, Montana, Michigan, New Jersey, West Virginia and Vermont. The goal of the tours is to solicit feedback on the No Child Left Behind Act and the Obama Administration’s education agenda, including such issues as early childhood, higher standards, teacher quality and workforce development.
