US Secretary of Education Arne Duncan: Two years later

Posted September 14, 2011

US Secretary of Education Arne Duncan visited Detroit Public Schools today as part of “Education and the Economy,” the U.S. Education Department’s second annual back-to-school bus tour. Duncan joined DPS Emergency Financial Manager Roy Roberts, Gov. Rick Snyder, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Mike Flanagan, and Detroit Mayor Dave Bing, for a “New Day” forum at Charles H. Wright Academy of Arts and Science to highlight recent steps initiated by Michigan and the city of Detroit to provide better support and turn around persistently low-performing schools across Michigan. While here, Duncan said, “I couldn’t be more hopeful and optimistic about Detroit and where it’s going to go.”
