Secretary Duncan will address the winter meeting of the U.S. Conference of Mayors on Wednesday, Jan. 21 at the Capital Hilton Hotel in Washington, D.C. He will talk about the need to replace the broken No Child Left Behind law with a version that not only prepares children for college and careers, but also delivers on the promise of equity and real opportunity for every child to set them up for success.

The Secretary will also discuss President Obama’s free community college proposal, which would make two years of community college free for responsible students, letting students earn the first half of a bachelor’s degree and earn skills needed in the workforce at no cost. A Q&A will follow.
