Duncan: The EdSec's Media Calendar

340x_custom_1267655106643_statue Here's the EdSec's media schedule for next week, back after a couple of weeks' absence.

Fun fact:  Duncan and I are the same age and both grew up in Chicago.  My high school friend Tony ("Leadfoot") Kahan claims that he once held Duncan to very few points in a a basketball tournament. 

Let's all be sure to consider his every appearance and speech as "news."
