Lynn Sweet and the NYT are reporting that CPS chief Arne Duncan will be Obama's Secretary of Education:

"He has seven years’ experience as chief executive of the Chicago Public Schools, the nation’s third-largest school district, where he has earned a solid reputation for confronting pressing issues in public education, like how to raise teacher quality, how to transform weak schools and when to shutter those that are irredeemably failing."

Dunno; "a solid reputation for confronting" seems to be hedging that description. Earlier this month, MSNBC speculated that he would be a compromise pick.
