Today in Tone Deaf: Arne Duncan Visits Haiti

Coach Arne shows Haitian kids the pick and roll, similar to his educational bait and switch.

Coach Arne D. hit the streets of Haiti for a pickup game of b-ball, then regurgitated his standard stump speech on what the US is doing to improve education:

One of the many needs here are clear data systems, having transparency, knowing basic things, like how many children we have, how many schools there are, how many teachers we have.  I think it’s so important that everybody be transparent and honest on the good, the bad and the ugly.

Yep, all that transparency, all that data, knowing how many teachers we have (too few) and how many children we have in poverty (waaaay too many) keeps Coach Arne focused. On all the wrong solutions. At least he’s still got mad hoops skillz.
