CAA Signs Former Education Secretary Arne Duncan

Arne Duncan, President Obama’s former secretary of education, has signed with CAA.

The agency said that it “will create opportunities for Duncan across all areas, including books and speaking, as well as identify new business ventures.”

Duncan stepped down from his post earlier this year, having been only one of two cabinet members from the start of Obama’s first term still in office. The other is Tom Vilsack, the current secretary of agriculture.

Duncan spearheaded education reform efforts such as Race to the Top and Investing in Innovation, and helped secure congressional support for education investments, such as $100 billion to fund 350,000 teaching jobs as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
