Arnie Duncan on California's education system
Original post made by Joe on Nov 3, 2009
The state had "lost its way" as a leader in public education, and he issued a challenge: "Your state once had the best education system in the country. From cradle to career, you took care of your children. You made sure they were ready to enter your universities or be productive participants in the workforce. I ask you, is California going to lead the race to the top or are you going to lead the retreat?"
The California Teachers Association and some Democratic legislators are opposed to at least some of Race to the Top's provisions, according to former Mercury News reporter John Fensterwald at his blog "Educated Guess."
