Private-school grad Duncan says U.S. needs 'more great schools'
"I am a product of a phenomenal private school," U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan said recently. As the Council for American Private Education reports, Duncan said
the country needs "more great schools," whether public, faith-based, or independent. He noted that people sometimes like to pit public schools against private schools, but called such conflicts and distinctions "absolutely artificial."
