Duncan, Holder in Chicago Wednesday in wake of Fenger murder

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--Education Sec. Arne Duncan and Attorney General Eric Holder hit Chicago on Wednesday in the wake of a gang-related murder of a Fenger High School teen. The videotaped incident caught a lot of national attention and President Obama dispatched the two cabinet members back home to see what their presence can do to help. Holder and Duncan--a former Chicago public schools chief--will be meeting with local officials and students. There will be some sort of a press conference. I'm expecting details soon. Holder and Duncan will not be going to Fenger because it could be too disruptive.
