Duncan to principals

I know that Secretary Duncan addressed the national conference of the National Association of Elementary/Secondary School Principals in Washington late last week, but unfortunately, the usually quick updates on ed.gov are slower this summer (nothing new on speeches since July 2). I did manage to find this analysis from a guest blogger at Education Week, however:

“We need a team of warrior principals to leave the easier places and go into the most underserved communities with a chance to build a new team,” Mr. Duncan said to the roughly 350 principals who are in Washington this week for the annual meeting of the National Association of Elementary School Principals and National Association of Secondary School Principals. Mr. Duncan said he would need to enlist about 1,000 principals a year, over the next five years.
