Mike Klonsky: Duncan Says Kids in Chicago Drop Out Because School Is Too Easy

Arne Duncan, same old Arne.

Mike Klonsky quotes an opinion piece that Arne wrote praising Rahm Emanuel’s proposal to withhold diplomas from seniors in high school unless they have a definite commitment for college, a job or the military.

Arne says that kids drop out because school is too easy. Mike has a few choice words on the subject.

If they had rigor…if they had grit…if they were faced with higher expectations…etc.
