Dr. Deborah Delisle new assistant secretary for elementary and secondary education for the Education Department hugs Carl Mitchell, a high school senior at the host school, The Academies at Frederick Douglass High School, in Baltimore, Maryland on Tuesday, February 12, 2013. Mitchell and his schoolmate Mariah Frederick, right, sophomore class president were asked to speak to a roundtable panel during a lunchtime discussion about school turnarounds. The story Carl Mitchell told about his time in High School roused an emotional response from Dr. Delisle. The school's campus principal Dr. Antonio Hurt, is on the left.
