The Link Between Standards and Innovation: Secretary Arne Duncan's Remarks to Innovate to Educate Symposium, Richmond, VA
It is pleasure to be here today.
Thank you, Governor McDonnell for convening such a great group of leaders to discuss how Virginians can use innovation to drive education reform.
Today, I want to discuss the often neglected link between standards and innovation. Even the very words "standards" and "innovation" seem at odds with each other.
