I don't want to hear any BS about him hiring the most qualified.
Under no circumstances is Arne Duncan the most qualified person for the job. I will not even entertain the argument.
Duncan's entire career has been nothing but an exercise in White Privilege. There is no Black person, that I have ever seen, get to the levels of this man, without having the BASIC proper credentials.
With all the Black folk who have PhD's in Education, he chooses Duncan, who has a sociology degree.
A sociology degree.
I didn't say Masters in Sociology. I didn't say PhD in Sociology.
He has a damn Bachelors in Sociology.
He is a flunky tool crony choice of King Richard Daley II. He has done nothing for the Chicago Public School system. Not for the children that need it the most.
Bump Hillpatine being Secretary of State, THIS is the worst appointment that Obama has made.
And Black and Brown children - who make up the majorities of the Urban School Population - will have to pay for it.
Edited to say this: I am from Chicago. I have seen, up close and personal, Duncan's mediocrity and the harm he has done to Urban school children. The other folks suggested for Sec. of Education, I didn't know about them. I know Duncan's incompetence.
