Transcript: An Hour With Arne Duncan

Who said:

"If you're going to do something, do it."

"I think there's a lot of scientific evidence that the status quo doesn't work."

"I just want to make this clear. We've never said charter schools are the magic answer."

"Frankly in education we're better at doing more things than we are stopping doing things."

That would be U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan in his hour-long interview with EdWeek reporters. The transcript is now online, so check it out.

If you just want the highlights, then read Alyson's story on the role incentives will play in No Child Left Behind Act reauthorization, the earlier blog entry, or watch the short video clip below. The Teacher Beat blog has a good perspective on Duncan's comments on teacher quality.
