Hi. Iā€™m Arne Duncan, U.S. Secretary of Education. Over the past year, we are really proud of saving at least 300,000 educators’ jobs across the country and staving off an education catastrophe, driving real reform in states around the country, and just getting the country focused on students and learning and how critically important it is.
