TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan is bringing his 10-day national bus tour to two Kansas communities.

Duncan scheduled a stop in Topeka at noon Tuesday at the Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site for a discussion of equal educational opportunities. Kansas Education Commissioner Diane DeBacker and members of the State Board of Education planned to take part.

Later in the day, Duncan will lead a town hall meeting on educational issues at Emporia State University and tour the National Teachers Hall of Fame, located on the campus.

Duncan, a former CEO of the Chicago public school system, will end his tour Friday in Washington.
