Obama is big time into schools for the man himself had the best of it. Private schools and Ivy League Private colleges through out his life. However his wife is a product of public school education and she had done quite well for herself too.
Now the vision of Obama as far as education is concerned is going to be shaped by a man named Arne Duncan, and Arne is no stranger to those who know the education landscape of Chicago. Mr Duncan is the preset superintendent of Chicago Public schools and soon the man will be elevated to the post of Secretary of Education. Obama stars are shining on Chicago and I am sure the denizens of the great state of Illinois are loving every moment of it.
Mr. Duncan is a product of private education, just like his boss. Arne graduate from Harvard and both became pals on the basketball court first. Some say they started the discussion on the courts and soon it moved into the offices as well.
Duncan comes heavy on experience as he has served for about seven years in his previous position in Chicago and nobody doubts that the man is a push over for this guy took the bulls by the horns in the district of Chicago which has the country’s third largest school system.
Do you know this man or have you dealt with him in any capacity? What do you think of the nomination? Have your say below and let everybody know about it.
Good luck to our man Arne. Watch the Arne Duncan Public Hearing video on youtube below:
