Lamar Alexander, U.S. Secretary of Education under a republican president, and Arne Duncan, U.S. Secretary of Education under a democrat president, both saw public school as the place children should be at, during their waking hours – not at home and not with their families.  Arne Duncan just expanded on Lamar’s bizarre picture of the role public school should play in the lives of children.
