Learning from a New York Education Initiative

U.S Secretary of Education Arne Duncan is back in town this week to talk about the White House's plan to reform the country's education system. Among the proposals is Promise Neighborhoods, a program that's based on something that's been happening in New York's Harlem. Lorraine Forte, Editor-in-Chief of Catalyst Chicago, an independent newsmagazine covering the Chicago Public Schools, tells us more about the program.
