Teachers may be affected if Obama school plan is realized

Education Secretary Arne Duncan says that President Obama wants 5,000 of the nation's public schools to reopen, after being closed for failure to perform. Here, Duncan is seen at the White House in Washington after a meeting with Obama on Thursday.

President Barack Obama is proposing to close 5,000 of the most underperforming schools during the next five years, clean house and reopen them. "If we turn around just the bottom 1%, the bottom thousand schools per year for the next five years, we could really move the needle, lift the bottom and change the lives of tens of millions of underserved children," said U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan.
