A “Brain-Based” Carnival of Education

By Mary Ann Zehr — August 27, 2008 1 min read

Sharp Brains posted today the 186th edition of the Carnival of Education. The Q&A format is very readable.

Let me note that Sharp Brains incorrectly quotes my blog item about graduation rates for ELLs in New York City in saying that 45.5 percent of ELLs are newcomers. In fact, the blog entry says it’s 45.5 percent of ELLs in grades 8-12 who are newcomers. (Aug. 28 Update: Sharp Brains has now corrected this.)

But I have asked the city’s Department of Education to provide the data for K-7 ELL students as well so we have a fuller picture.

A version of this news article first appeared in the Learning the Language blog.
