U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan will stop in Topeka this month as part of a national bus tour.
Duncan will visit the Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site on September 18. He'll be joined by members of the Kansas State Board of Education, Topeka city officials and students from the area.
Topeka's former Monroe School was designated in 1992 as a national historic site honoring the U.S. Supreme Court's 1954 decision that declared segregated schools unconstitutional.
Duncan will discuss recent education successes in Kansas and nationwide. His tour will also take him to Emporia and to Kansas City, Missouri.
