Arne Duncan: Hurricane Katrina benefited New Orleans' education system
By The Post's education reporter Nick Anderson:
Education Secretary Arne Duncan called Hurricane Katrina "the best thing that happened to the education system in New Orleans" because it forced the community to take steps to improve low-performing public schools, according to excerpts from the transcript of a television interview made public Friday afternoon.
Duncan's interview on "Washington Watch with Roland Martin" was scheduled to air Sunday and Monday on TV One.
The excerpts, e-mailed to reporters, quoted Duncan as giving an evaluation of the impact of the 2005 hurricane on the city's schools.
