Statement from U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan on the Passing of Senator Daniel Inouye

Press Office, (202) 401-1576,

"Senator Inouye understood that education is an investment, not an expense, and he consistently stood up for the students of Hawaii and our nation. After heroically serving in World War II, he completed college and law school with help from the G.I. Bill, leading to a lifetime of public service and a commitment to bipartisanship that I deeply respected."
