The Rundown landed an interview with Education Secretary Arne Duncan this afternoon following his live Webcast with students from across the country.

We spoke to him about the initiative on financial literacy that he and Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner are spearheading. We also discussed the Race To The Top program, which has states compete for more than $4 billion in stimulus money. As the application deadline nears, he gives us an update on the program.
