Aug. 31, 2010 issue:
U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan was on a campaign to cheer on America's teachers at a time when a sizable number are skeptical of President Obama's education agenda. Duncan faces a curious situation. In the past year and a half, he has dispensed tens of billions of dollars to sustain schools through fiscal crises and to fund ideas to improve. He awarded nine states and the District $3 billion for education innovation. As the school year started, he unloaded another $10 billion for education jobs.
