Mahalia Hines and Arne Duncan have/had a generic relationship

Notes Hope College Preparatory High School in Englewood was the only neighborhood school to see a double-digit jump in its composite score--from 27 percent of students passing to 40 percent. Duncan credited Principal Mahalia Hines' efforts to make classroom instruction the consuming part of her day--raising expectations and pushing to align lessons with state standards. "Mahalia is an instructional leader," Duncan said. "This is unquestionably her top priority, and everyone knows it."
