Hometown Protest To Greet Duncan In Chicago

6a00d8341bf90b53ef00e55503007c8834-800wiCORE is going to welcome Arne Duncan with a good old Chicago-style
protest when he shows up to speak Friday morning. 

I
think this may be the first time Duncan has encountered protesters
since he became Secretary.

The teachers are protesting the impact of
Chicago's school turnaround efforts, which have despite all the kudos
given them by the mainstream press displaced thousands of veteran
teachers -- many of them African American -- and not always made an
obvious positive difference. 

Yes, you can follow them via Twitter.
