Secretary Duncan to Visit San Antonio for Town Hall Discussion on President Obama’s Promise Zone Initiative

U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan will visit San Antonio tomorrow where he will join San Antonio Mayor Julián Castro and parents in a town hall discussion about President Obama’s Promise Zone initiative at Tynan Early Childhood Education Center. The center, which is part of the EastPoint Promise Neighborhood grant, helps provide a strong start to the city’s youngest students. The conversation will focus on partnerships within the community that are supporting parents – and providing them with opportunities to learn – and strengthening education, as well as the importance of early childhood education.

The Promise Zone Initiative is part of the President’s plan to create a better bargain for the middle-class by partnering with local communities and businesses to create jobs, increase economic security, expand educational opportunities, increase access to quality, affordable housing and improve public safety.
