US education secretary set to visit Kentucky, Ohio to push early childhood initiatives

MIDDLETOWN, Ohio – The U.S. secretary of education is traveling to Kentucky and Ohio to promote President Barack Obama’s proposal for a major expansion of early childhood education.

Secretary Arne Duncan’s Thursday visit to the region includes a morning discussion at an early childhood education center in Louisville, Ky., and an anti-bullying forum in Cincinnati in the evening.

Duncan also plans to tour a children’s center in Middletown, Ohio, and take part in an afternoon forum with Ohio education leaders on expanding children’s early learning opportunities. Obama has proposed working with states to provide programs for all 4-year-olds and eventually all 3-year-olds.

In Cincinnati, Duncan will join the National PTA’s evening town hall on bullying prevention.
