Ever heard of Apollo 20?
No, we aren’t talking about a space mission. Apollo 20 is HISD’s program to turn around struggling schools.
Lee High School, one of the schools using the program, had a special guest.
U.S. Education Secretary, Arne Duncan, visited the school to observe the tutoring program.
He had a lot of good things to say about the Apollo 20 program, including the possibility of it influencing education policy across the nation.
