EMPORIA, Kan. (AP) _ U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan plans to visit Emporia and other Kansas communities during a national back-to-school tour.

The Emporia Gazette reports that Duncan will be in town Sept. 18 to visit the National Teachers Hall of Fame, where he'll hold a town hall meeting with teachers and students.

Duncan is also planning stops in Topeka and Kansas City, Kan.

It would be Duncan's first visit to Emporia.

Teachers Hall of Fame spokeswoman Carol Strickland says Duncan has wanted to visit the hall and Emporia State University since 2009, when the school was chosen as a top teacher-prep institution.
