After reading an interview in U.S. News, I am cautiously excited about Arne Duncan. I had hoped that President Obama would nominate someone in higher education to become the Education Secretary rather than a current school superintendent or chancellor. I worried and still do worry that the new Education Secretary would attempt to issue one solution for all schools, students, and teachers. While I do not know, yet, what Duncan has planned for the country’s schools, I am glad that he believes that No Child Left Behind needs to be reworked. Equally important is the idea that there should be better standards set for all states, and not fifty different standards. I am hopeful.
