Arne Duncan, Secretary of Education will address the National Press Club today to discuss the “quiet revolution “driven by motivated parents who want better educational options for their children and is driven by educators and administrators who are challenging the inertia that has trapped generations of children in second-rate schools.”

Duncan is also expected to announce the finalists in the second round of the Race to the Top. California is expected to be among those finalists.

President Obama is expected to address education reform in a speech to the National Urban League on Thursday.
