Education demands stronger leadership
Dr. Joseph A. Ricciotti, director of the Teaching Internship Program in GSEAP writes in an opinion: At a time when education in the United States is in deep crisis, President Obama made his poorest Cabinet choice in selecting Mr. Arne Duncan as secretary of education. Mr. Duncan’s qualifications, including a bachelor of arts degree in sociology, hardly qualify him to hold the most important education position of leadership in the country. Moreover, his limited educational experience as superintendent of the Chicago Public Schools, where he had a very poor track record, is further evidence that the man is obviously not qualified for a crucial educational leadership role in this nation.
