August 14, 2015Statement from U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan on Indiana Denying Preschool to Undocumented Children
“Indiana is rightfully proud of its steps to expand preschool programs and elevate quality, but it’s shortsighted and wrong to deny children educational opportunity from the starting line because of their immigration status – especially children who are clearly here through no fault of their own.

April 27, 2011Secretary Arne Duncan's Remarks at the Release of the National Institute for Early Education Research Report, "The State of Preschool 2010"
Note: Speaker deviated from prepared remarks.
I am pleased to be joining NIEER at the release of their annual State of Preschool report because early childhood education is so central to our children and our nation's future. Yet for all of the importance of early childhood education, NIEER's 2010 State of Preschool report reveals some troubling trends.
