Arne Duncan’s unlearned lessons | IN 60 SECONDS

Former US Secretary of Education Arne Duncan recently published his memoir, “How Schools Work” (Simon & Schuster, August 2018). Duncan became a matinee idol for progressive reformers during the high-flying Obama years, even as the school reform coalition unraveled and high-profile reforms like the Common Core and teacher evaluation disappointed. AEI’s Rick Hess explains that Duncan’s memoir offers a revealing if unintentional window into what reformers got wrong.
