California education buffs: Arne Duncan meets PPIC Mark Baldassare

U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan will talk about improving the nation's education system with Mark Baldassare, president of the Public Policy Institute of California.

Duncan and Baldassare will talk about about a variety of critical education issues, including the importance of early learning, the coalition of California school districts seeking a federal waiver from No Child Left Behind, and the future of higher education.

The talk promises to be illuminating, particularly at a time when California is implementing crucial education reform like the local funding formula and the Common Core Standards.

The event will take place in San Francisco, and it's full. But you can watch the webcast! Sign up for it here
