USDE: Duncan In Minnesota

image from www.google.com EdSec Duncan starts the week ith a school visit and Senator Al Franken roundtable in St. Paul, Minn, and ends it with an immigration event. What he does during the rest of the week, we have no idea.  Suggestions, there's no shortage of those:  How about getting to work on beefing up SIG implementation?  The USDE is shoveling money out the door like it was Stimulus funding or something -- not getting much for its money, far as I can tell.  Or maybe you know better.

Is it my imagination or is the Secretary getting back-benched these days?
