U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan to Discuss Progress and the Future of Education at the Forum Club of the Palm Beaches in Florida

Secretary Duncan will speak at the Forum Club of the Palm Beaches in West Palm Beach, Florida, on Monday, March 9. He will highlight the success of key education efforts, thanks to the hard work and leadership of parents, teachers, principals, and district and state officials, and his vision for the future of education.

Duncan will outline his vision for the future and the need to replace the current version of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA)—also known as the No Child Left Behind Act—with a law that delivers on the promise of equity and real opportunity for every child. U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan has called on Congress to create a bipartisan law that gives teachers and principals the resources they need, expands high-quality preschool for families and supports schools and districts in creating innovative solutions to problems that translate into better outcomes for students.
