Education Secretary Listens to ESP Issues
First Ever ESP Listening Tour
Nearly 20 members of the North Kingstown Education Support Professional (NKESP) Association in Rhode Island rolled up their sleeves and sat down for an informal chat with U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan in a packed library of North Kingstown’s Hamilton Elementary School on November 2. Duncan has been conducting a Listening and Learning tour with teachers around the country, but it was his first audience with school support staff. His goal – general information about the ESP role in schools and specifics about the impact No Child Left Behind has had on school employees. Watch a video from the meeting.
