On Thursday, Duncan will join Gov. John Hickenlooper and Lt. Gov. Joe Garcia at Skyline High School in Longmont to take part in a town hall meeting with students, educators and business executives. They’ll talk about ways to improve education in science, technology, engineering and math.

In the afternoon, he plans to hold a panel discussion with nearly a dozen principals from Denver schools to discuss their model to support and train good principals.

On Friday, Duncan will join U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet and Denver Mayor Michael Hancock in a discussion with teachers on ways to improve their leadership to better support students.
