During the first two segments of Inside Education Sid discussed the Arne Duncan turnaround with regard to teachers; The Great Common Core Textbook swindle; and the possibility of performing an evaluation on Arne Duncan by administering a test to the 4300 people who work at the Department of Education — good tongue in cheek thinking!

A discussion on the re-authorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act was introduced and will be continued in future shows as the bills in both houses will enter the conference stage.
