Education Secretary Proposes Public Boarding Schools


Education Secretary Arne Duncan has a solution for children who have no parents or grandparents in the home – create public boarding schools that are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Speaking at the National Summit on Youth Violence Prevention in Crystal City, VA on Tuesday, Duncan said, “One idea that I threw out … is the idea of public boarding schools. That’s a little bit of a different idea – but the question is do we have some children where there’s not a mom, there’s not a dad, there’s not a grandma, there’s just nobody at home?”

He added, “There’s just certain kids we should have 24/7 to really create a safe environment and give them a chance to be successful.”

Duncan expressed the idea that schools should be open 12, 13, 14 hours a day, becoming “community centers” by offering a variety of after-school programs to keep children “safe.”
