U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan will visit San Antonio tomorrow where he will join San Antonio Mayor Julián Castro and parents in a town hall discussion about President Obama’s Promise Zone initiative at Tynan Early Childhood Education Center. The center, which is part of the EastPoint Promise Neighborhood grant, helps provide a strong start to the city’s youngest students. The conversation will focus on partnerships within the community that are supporting parents – and providing them with opportunities to learn – and strengthening education, as well as the importance of early childhood education.

The Promise Zone Initiative is part of the President’s plan to create a better bargain for the middle-class by partnering with local communities and businesses to create jobs, increase economic security, expand educational opportunities, increase access to quality, affordable housing and improve public safety.
