Update: White House Muzzling Duncan On School Safety
Read this EdWeek story (Chicago Years Inform Ed. Secretary's Views on Gun Violence) and you get the clear impression that the White House is reining in EdSec Duncan on gun control right now. Usually unconstrained on policy issues, open to the press, and Obama's go-to guy, Duncan's post-Sandy Hook Elementary remarks have been muted (and pre-scripted). He won't talk to EdWeek. Why not? He's known as a fan of gun control and an enemy of the NRA, which makes him somewhat toxic right now.
