To Date, Duncan Not Subpoenaed in Chicago Schools Probe

| 1 Comment

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."

And this is who is leading the US Department of Education? All of the work that is being done to expand charter schools is really about the well-connected and rich parents seeking a free private-quality education without paying for it. We are creating segregation in education along the lines of wealth and influence. How can we allow Duncan to do this?
