TRANSITION: Duncan's Number-One School Reform Wish

ED-AI761_Levy_E_20081224113106 Chicago's Arne Duncan submitted to an interview with Scholastic Administrator just before getting picked for the EdSec spot (It's A Slam Dunk). 

In the interview, Duncan generally comes across as hyper-earnest, describes Obama's mad basketball skills, and -- tidbit! - lists his top school reform wish.  

Left out of the final version was Duncan's description of how playing basketball on Chicago's South Side toughened him up even more than his strangely-spelled name.
