When asked about the return on investment of the administration’s competitive grants and waiver offer, Duncan said, “It’s still too early. We’re thrilled with where we’re going, but there’s still a lot of unfinished business.”
If Obama is elected for a second term, Duncan said that going forward, he plans to focus on science, technology, engineering, and math education and increasing the use of technology in the classroom. Specifically, he said textbooks “should be obsolete” within the next few years as schools move to digital learning methods.
