U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan rolled into Santa Fe Monday on a green and blue bus decorated with a mural of animals frolicking in the shade of an acorn tree. New Mexico was represented by a bear wearing a zia symbol.

Duncan is on a multistate bus tour of New Mexico, Arizona, Utah and California as part of an orchestrated effort — campaign-style bus and all — to sell Congress on President Barack Obama’s proposal to provide preschool education to all children.
