Catalyst Chicago reports that CPS chief education officer Barbara Eason-Watkins will replace Arne Duncan. In 1997, late Reader staff writer Grant Pick profiled her for the publication. 

Update: Alexander Russo: "Duncan wasn't just a caretaker of the school system, but he certainly wasn't really all that bold or inspiring.  He was a safe choice. "
