The U.S. secretary of education is visiting Alabama.
Education Secretary Arne Duncan will make stops in Birmingham and Huntsville on Tuesday as part of a bus tour coinciding with the start of the school year.
In Birmingham, Duncan and Mayor William Bell will participate in a round-table discussion promoting President Obama's program to help young men. It's called "My Brother's Keeper."
Duncan is scheduled to hold a town-hall meeting later with students at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville.
