I am working on a story for SFGate and GreatSchools.net on Obama's pick. I'm hoping to collect quotes from local principals, teachers, and parents. If you have thoughtful answers to one or both of the following two questions, please email me your responses along with your name and phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks! Kate
"When it comes to school reform, Arne is the most hands-on of hands-on practitioners," Obama said, making the announcement at a school that he said has made remarkable progress under Duncan's leadership.
"He's not beholden to any one ideology, and he's worked tirelessly to improve teacher quality," Obama said.
1) What do you think of Obama's appointment of Arne Duncan?
2) What you hope Duncan's top priority will be?
3) How do you hope the new administration will affect schools in the Bay Area? What do you hope will change?
