SHARE Duncan, Holder in Chicago Wednesday in wake of Fenger murder

WASHINGTON–Education Sec. Arne Duncan and Attorney General Eric Holder hit Chicago on Wednesday in the wake of a gang-related murder of a Fenger High School teen. The videotaped incident caught a lot of national attention and President Obama dispatched the two cabinet members back home to see what their presence can do to help. Holder and Duncan–a former Chicago public schools chief–will be meeting with local officials and students. There will be some sort of a press conference. I’m expecting details soon. Holder and Duncan will not be going to Fenger because it could be too disruptive.
