Thanks for posting this wonderful interview, Michele. It brilliantly shows us the heart of Arne Duncan, his motivations, his enthusiasm, and all the reasons Mr. Obama chose him to head the Department of Education. I must say I am impressed by his grasp of the critical issues, particularly in making schools the hubs of their communities and in bringing in services that kids need in addition to education. He may actually have a chance of impacting the lives of kids across the country. Bravo, Obama! Patricia Kokinos, www.ChangeTheSchools.com
