Arne Duncan tweets a thank you to Lancaster for 'challenging status quo'

Lancaster schools got a shout out from President Obama's top education chief Tuesday night.

Education Secretary Arne Duncan tweeted a thank you to Lancaster Central School District for "challenging status quo" when district leaders changed its mascot from the racially charged Redskins name to the Lancaster Legends.

He followed it up by questioning why the NFL's Washington Redskins hasn't done the same thing to "stop perpetuating racial stereotypes."
