“Would LeBron James Have Made The Same Decision If He Had Gone To College?” & Other In-Depth Questions Asked To Sec. Duncan…

The headline to this post was, I kid you not, asked by a member of the National Press Corps today to Education Secretary Arne Duncan

Happily, there were better questions asked than that one, though, overall, I was less-than impressed with their caliber.

Secretary Duncan did have some reasonable things to say — both about parent involvement, schools connecting to the community and about multiple measures for teacher evaluation. We can only hope that actions will follow.

You can watch his speech and the questions and answers here.

  1. Maybe that question was asked on a dare. Maybe someone from ESPN accidentally attended an education event. I don’t know – scratching my head on that one. But, yes, with Duncan, it’s all about deeds. He says the right thing to stave off the sharpest criticism that he should be hearing, but refuses to acknowledge how policies undermine those words.
