How do you spell disaster? Arne Duncan

Arne Duncan is a buffoon.

Unfortunately for the nation’s students, teachers, parents and public education system he also serve’s as the country’s Secretary of Education.

Over the past few days, Education Bloggers around the country have been reporting on Duncan’s recent defense of the national corporate education privatization movement.

Here are some of the commentary pieces education bloggers have posted over the last few days about Arne Duncan’s recent claim that suburban white moms are the problem behind the Obama Administration’s problems with the Common Core roll-out. 

More blog posts will be added as they are located.

At the bottom of the post you’ll find a link to one of the petitions going around calling for Duncan’s removal.
