Got a question for US Education Sec. Arne Duncan? Know a student who might? SparkAction!—a national youth news site—created an online contest where young people can post questions and vote for their favorites through February 18. Sec. Duncan will answer top questions on February 26 at the National Youth Summit in Washington, DC.

The Youth Summit is the closing event of the Department of Education’s  National Youth Listening Tour.

To check out some short videos from the listening tour, including initial student responses on how to fix the US public education system, click here and here.

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
