DCPS students will get White House easter egg invites

Secretary of Education Arnie Duncan will hand out tickets to this year's White House Easter Egg Roll to select students of J.O. Wilson Elementary School during a visit.
Education Secretary Arne Duncan plans to hand out tickets to students at J.O. Wilson Elementary School in Northeast Washington during a visit to observe how the school has improved its academic rigor and helped students live healthier lives.

"I don't know if there will be enough tickets for everyone," said Principal Cheryl B. Warley, stressing that the ticket giveaway is just a small part of the important visit.

Duncan will be accompanied by Mayor Adrian M. Fenty (D), D.C. Schools Chancellor Michelle Rhee, State Superintendent of Education Kerri Briggs and D.C. Charter School Board Executive Director Josephine Baker. The mayor's office is staying mum on details about the tickets until after a news conference this afternoon.
