Roadtrip Nation | Arne Duncan on the Roadtrip Nation Experience | PBS

Duration: 08:47
Program: Roadtrip Nation

As part of the Roadtrip Nation Experience curriculum, three high school students from Yonkers, New York, rode the train down to Washington DC to interview US Secretary of Education Arne Duncan. Sitting down with Arne, the students find out that before he became the head of American education, he was a pro basketball player whose political ambitions were met with doubt from others. Arne's interview is part of a vast Interview Archive created by Roadtrip Nation, dedicated to helping individuals define their own roads in life. All of the interviews are accessible online through our Interview Archive, which serves as the foundation of our educational curriculum, The Roadtrip Nation Experience.
