Conference Call with Arne Duncan

U.S. Department of Education
October 1, 2010

Secretary Arne Duncan held a 30-minute conference call with education grantmakers on Friday, October 1.

He reflected on the important role that the philanthropic sector has played over the past year in supporting the transformations taking place around the country. The Secretary thanked grantmakers for their support for the Investing in Innovation Fund (i3) and Promise Neighborhoods, and encouraged funders to help states and districts maintain the momentum created by their applications to these grant programs and others such as Race to the Top. He then answered questions from the participants about the role for education funders as states and districts implement reforms in a difficult fiscal environment.
