Arne Duncan Returns To Home Turf To Tackle Gun Violence

Former U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan says Chicago’s struggle with gun violence is personal. As CEO of Chicago Public Schools Duncan had to visit many parents of students who were shot dead. After his stint in the White House he returned to his hometown to tackle that issue.
