#22 ARNE DUNCAN
Secretary of Education
Education Secretary Arne Duncan wants kids to attend public schools while closing the door to parental involvement in their child's education. Duncan is fully prepared to carry out President Obama's education agenda, limiting the role of parents in schools while giving more power to the federal government to control the education agenda in the classroom.
Despite higher test scores and better grades through school choice, Duncan's first move as Education secretary erased the option for low-income parents to send their children to high-performing schools by pulling scholarships and vouchers for students who had been admitted to the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program. These students are now forced to attend low-performing public schools.
