(Guest Post by Matthew Ladner)

Rick Hess has provided a summary of a speech that Arne Duncan delivered at AEI yesterday that is a MUST READ. The hyperlink function of the blog seems to be malfunctioning, so here is the link:

  1. Secretary Duncan tells a self-selected audience what they want to hear. The gullible Mr Hess is impressed. Why? There was no courage, no exceptional honesty, or unusual insight on display. Did the Secretary offer a way out for parents of children stuck in wretched schools? Did the Secretary suggest how courageous members of elected school boards could survive the opposition of unionized public-sector employees? No.

    He killed the DC voucher program. Who cares what a liar says?

    Longhorn nation has to be grateful to accept him, they haven’t had a BOOM moment all season.
