DENVER — U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan is visiting Colorado schools to discuss excellence in education and leadership skills.

On Thursday, Duncan will join Gov. John Hickenlooper and Lt. Gov. Joe Garcia at Skyline High School in Longmont to take part in a town hall meeting with students, educators and business executives. They'll talk about ways to improve education in science, technology, engineering and math.
