U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan came to my school today for a press conference to promote education funding in the stimulus package. That's my principal there, introducing him in the library. How about that?
"There is no more immediate way to stimulate the economy--short-term and long-term--than to keep teachers teaching and to keep students learning," Duncan said. "As the bill moves to conference, we must get every dollar possible into America's classrooms."
