Excerpts from Education Secretary Arne Duncan’s prepared remarks at the Learning Forward conference today, Dec. 8
What does this new law mean for your classrooms, schools and districts? There’s lot to be figured out as the nation moves to implement this new law. But here’s what I can tell you today: This new law will mean that you can continue challenging your kids to live up to new, higher standards that you have been working so hard to implement. Congress re-committed us as a nation to the work you’ve been doing to raise standards.
