Arne Duncan In The House

That's right people. The keynote speaker at lunch today was none other than Secretary of Education Arne Duncan. Secretary Duncan spent his time discussing the importance of financial education and the once in a lifetime opportunity all of us have right now.

A Duncan quote on the back of the DOE pamphlet handed out at the conference..."Education is not just an economic issue. It's a moral issue. It's the civil rights issue of our generation. We have an obligation to give every child in America an education that helps him or her succeed in a career and fulfill a role as an active, productive citizen."
