US Education Secretary, Governor Visit 3 Schools

DETROIT (AP) – President Obama’s education secretary will be in Detroit on Monday for a town hall meeting on education issues and visits to three area schools.

The Detroit Public Schools and Gov. Rick Snyder’s office say Education Secretary Arne Duncan and Snyder will visit a fifth-grade class at Thirkell Elementary School at 11:15 a.m.

The school has about 490 students from preschool to eighth grade.

Snyder’s office says Duncan and the governor next visit Brenda Scott Elementary/Middle School, which the state Education Achievement Authority manages. The authority was created to run schools the state classifies as failing.

Duncan and Snyder hold a town hall meeting at Scott school and a round-table discussion at Perry Child development Center in Ypsilanti.
