Arne Duncan snubs DC parents

No education listening and learning from little DC by big DC

It appears now Secretary Duncan is having second thoughts about “listening and learning” from parents, teachers, and community leaders in the District of Columbia. During a recent education stakeholders’ forum representing national education interests general based in the District, Mr. Massie Ritsch, Deputy Assistant Secretary for External Affairs and Outreach for the Department of Education, announced a planned listening and learning tour has been scheduled this September in the District.

However, this “listening and learning tour” stop will be held only for national education associations located in the Washington metropolitan region to discuss national issues such as reauthorization of the elementary and secondary education act and congressional appropriations, not to listen and learn from District parents, students, teachers, and community members as has been the case for all previous listening and learning tour stops by Secretary Duncan.
