We’re all waiting to see what Arne Duncan is going to do, and whether NCLB is going to be reauthorized, revamped, or kicked to the curb.

Looks like we’ll be waiting for a little while yet.

Asked if he will push for passage of a new version of NCLB, Duncan says that he first wants to go on a cross-country listening tour and that he hopes that Congress will reauthorize a new version of the law late in the year. “Having lived with this, I have a good sense of what makes sense and what doesn’t,” he says. “But I want to be clear that I want to get out there and learn from people. And I think ultimately we should rebrand [the law].”

Asked what he would call a new version of the law, Duncan answered, “Don’t know yet. I’m open to ideas.”
