Rewarding school performance

Chicago Public Schools CEO Arne Duncan, U.S. Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings and Chicago Public Education Fund CEO Janet Knupp appear at a ceremony earlier in December at Wescott Elementary School, where ten school principals were given performance awards. Duncan was selected by President-elect Barack Obama Monday to succeed Spellings as the U.S. Secretary of Education. During her visit, Spellings said Duncan had the necessary skills to take her place.
