U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan will present the 2013 Broad Prize for Urban Education on Wednesday, Sept. 25, at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. During his presentation of the Broad Prize, Duncan will give brief remarks commending school districts that are pursuing district-wide reforms to improve public education.
The Broad Prize, established in 2002, is the largest education award in the country given each year to honor urban school districts that demonstrate the greatest overall performance and improvement in student achievement, while reducing achievement gaps among low-income and minority students. The winner will receive $550,000 in college scholarships for high school seniors who graduate in 2014. Live webcast of the announcement will be available at www.broadprize.org.
