I am pleased to report that Arne Duncan is stepping down as the US Secretary of Education. I wish he was being fired and disgraced, because he has done more to destroy and resegregate public education than any other individual. Except Barack Obama, who appointed him.
Good riddance. But his replacement is not likely to be better: John King, who was utterly indifferent to parent complaints about over-testing.
