The U.S. Department of Education’s General Counsel Charlie Rose will visit Washington state to continue the national discussion on education reform and the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA).  As part of the Department’s “Listening and Learning” tour, Rose will visit Aviation High School in Des Moines, Wash., and Renton High School in Renton, Wash.  He will tour the schools and meet with teachers, students, parents, staff and school partners. 

In May, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan launched a national “Listening and Learning” tour to seek grassroots input from a broad group of stakeholders around federal education policy. The goal of the tour is to solicit feedback on the No Child Left Behind Act and the Obama Administration’s education agenda, including such issues as early-childhood education, higher standards, teacher quality and workforce development.
