Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

Share your thoughts with Arne Duncan



U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan is holding a televised national town hall meeting at 8 p.m. Sept. 15, and he wants to hear from you as he prepares the show.

You can call toll-free to 1-888-493-9382 during the show, submit questions via e-mail to by Sept. 9, or send videotaped comments by Sept. 2. (For more details, read this flyer.)

What's also cool about this event is that the USDOE is going out of its way to seek input from Hillsborough residents. It has set up a daylong session to videotape the views of local students, parents and teachers at Egypt Lake Elementary School next week.

The show will be broadcast online and on the Florida Education Channel. Hillsborough's cable education channel also has agreed to air the show live. We'll have to watch and see if anyone from the area makes the cut.
