Arne Duncan and the media

Education Secretary Arne Duncan should answer some simple questions, no in depth innuendo required.

1. When he talks about providing “access” to Black and Latino students, does he believe that scholarships for Asian-Amerikans should be eliminated?

2. If there is a merit scholarship for various minorities, does he believe it a good decision to eliminate the Asian-Amerikan one and turn the scholarship into a need-based one for Blacks and Latinos?

3. If a scholarship has already been awarded does he not think that changes and policy should go through new funding and new policies, rather than backstabbing existing scholars who need continuous funding but also post-graduate professional gathering? In other words, even if one wanted to eliminate Asian-Amerikan scholarships can that not be done with a change in emphasis of new monies?
