U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan is scheduled to visit a St. Paul elementary school Tuesday with U.S. Sen. Al Franken.

Duncan will join Franken for a tour of Dayton’s Bluff Elementary, followed by a panel discussion and a question-and-answer session on education at 12:15 p.m. in the recreation center auditorium, Franken spokesman Marc Kimball said.

Franken has introduced legislation related to cultivating effective school principals, and he has been impressed with the leadership at Dayton’s Bluff, Kimball said.

The event is open to the public, but space is limited. Organizers ask those interested in attending to RSVP to Franken’s office at rsvp@franken. senate.gov/.
