EDUCATION SECRETARY TO ADDRESS BLACK CHILD DEVELOPMENT INSTITUTE'S CONFERENCE

U.S. Secretary Arne Duncan will deliver a luncheon keynote address to the 39th annual conference of the National Black Child Development Institute Monday at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Atlanta.

Duncan will discuss his thoughts on closing the achievement gap and promoting educational excellence for all students, regardless of race or ethnicity. He will express his philosophy that education is the civil rights issue of our time - and that our children have only one chance for an education and can't wait years or decades for reforms to take hold.

The National Black Child Development Institute strives to improve and advance the quality of life for black children and their families through advocacy and education.
