Duncan: Black male teachers needed

He's the head of education for the entire United States and he's calling all black men to the front– of the classroom– that is. This fall, Education Secretary Arne Duncan plans on touring historically black colleges and universities in hopes of increasing the number of black men teaching in America's public schools– which is currently less than 2 percent.

Is placing black men in the classroom the answer to solving some of the problems in the black community such as gang violence, high school drop out rates, and fatherless homes? Secretary Duncan thinks so. Do you agree, or disagree?

Share your thoughts and Tony will read some of them on air in the CNN Newsroom.
Watch the three-part series, Education: The Next Generation, starting today at 12pm ET.
