U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan will discuss this year’s education priorities, at a National Press Club Speakers’ event.

Secretary Duncan looks at today’s education challenges, and discusses what he hopes to accomplish in his second term in President Obama’s administration. The Secretary has taken the lead in pushing for the President’s proposal to provide high-quality early childhood education to low- and moderate income families. He also has been a forceful advocate for lowering interest rates on federal student loans and other efforts to make college affordable for students at all income levels.

The event is open to members of the media, NPC members and their guests.
