Leading entertainment and sports agency Creative Artists Agency (CAA) has signed former U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan. Duncan, one of the longest-serving cabinet members in President Obama’s administration, stepped down earlier this year from the post he held since January 2009.
Duncan’s tenure as secretary was marked by a number of significant accomplishments on behalf of American students and teachers. He helped to secure congressional support for President Obama’s investments in education, including the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act’s $100 billion to fund 325,000 teaching jobs, increases in Pell grants, reform efforts such as Race to the Top and Investing in Innovation, and interventions in low-performing schools.
CAA will create opportunities for Duncan across all areas, including books and speaking, as well as identify new business ventures.
