Education Secretary John King: US still has work to do on equity in schools
from The Christian Science Monitor
The walls of a prison have a way of giving people new perspective on opportunity. That held true for Secretary of Education John King Jr., on a recent visit to Limestone Correctional Facility in Harvest, Alaska, where he talked with inmates during his "Opportunity Across America" tour. "I was struck by how clear they are about the role of education, both in how they got to where they are and in how it will make their lives better when they get back," Secretary King said at a breakfast for reporters hosted by the Monitor in Washington.
