Print | Front Page | Email this story

NASHVILLE (AP) — U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan will make a series of stops in Nashville on Tuesday.

He is scheduled to attend a town hall meeting at Brick Church College Prep that morning before speaking a few hours later at a meeting of the Education Writers Association at Vanderbilt University.

Duncan will conclude his visit at a roundtable about teacher preparation with Vanderbilt University's Peabody College faculty and local teachers.

Duncan has lauded Tennessee for its education reforms.

Despite criticism about some of the changes the state has made, Duncan last year attributed the reforms in large part to a national report that showed Tennessee students leading the nation in academic improvement.
