To Date, Duncan Not Subpoenaed in Chicago Schools Probe
Over at This Week in Education, Alexander Russo wonders whether ex-Chicago Public Schools chief and now Education Secretary Arne Duncan has also been subpoenaed by federal officials in an investigation over allegations that well-connected parents called in favors to get their kids into elite public schools. (The Chicago Board of Education President has disclosed he has received a subpoena, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.)
Good question. So I asked.
John White, the press secretary for Duncan and the U.S. Department of Education, told me in an email today: "We have not been contacted."
