Teachers Target Ed. Sec. Duncan at National Convention in L.A.

A national teachers convention on Sunday called for President Obama to put U.S Secretary of Education Arne Duncan on an “improvement plan” as a prelude to replacing him.

The action was taken Sunday by the American Federation of Teachers, which is meeting in Los Angeles. It represents another marker in the long-running erosion of relations between organizations that represent instructors and the Democratic president they helped to elect twice.
