Duncan's donuts

Did he say it? We're never quite sure

Arne Duncan,
who has called for the closing of 5,000 schools, is interviewed by Politico's Mike Allen

DUNCAN: And then finally, having the courage to challenge the status quo, and what we're calling the bottom 1 percent of schools each year; not the 99 percent that are either world-class or they're improving each year, but those schools where the status quo is frankly unacceptable. And when we fail to do our job, when we're not educating, we--we perpetuate poverty.

ALLEN: 99 percent of schools in the country are acceptable?

DUNCAN: I didn't say that.
