Arne Duncan on The Colbert Report

In case you missed it like I did, U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan was Stephen Colbert’s guest on the October 5 episode of The Colbert Report. I always enjoy watching authors, academics, and politicians try to wedge in their talking points between Colbert’s silly interview questions and one-liners. Overall, I think Arne did a very nice job. Watch the interview (only 7 minutes long), then let other readers know how you think he did by writing a comment below.

    About Me

    I'm a Teach For America alum and spent three years as a high school teacher on the west and south sides of Chicago. I've conducted research on turnaround schools with a team from the University of Virginia, consulted for school districts across the country, and done work with New Leaders for New Schools, the Consortium on Chicago School Research, and DonorsChoose.org. Currently I'm finishing my PhD from UVa's Curry School of Education.

    My work has been published in Education Week, the Phi Delta Kappan, and a number of academic journals, and I'm a co-author of the book Teachers' Guide to School Turnarounds. I also contribute monthly to GOOD, the website "for people who give a damn": www.good.is/community/MichaelSalmonowicz
