A Quick Spin Around The Blogs

By Alexander Russo — October 22, 2007 1 min read

Because you have better things to do than read them all: It’s not just teachers who get staph infections, says EdWeek’s web watch (States Report Teacher Staph Infections). Good to know. Fighting against the inevitable Clinton win, says Scott Elliott, Obama stands and delivers in LA (Obama’s “in your face” move). Meanwhile, Mary Ann Zehr has the ELL provisions of the new Kennedy draft (Senate Draft of Title III of NCLB). And the AFTies note that acceptance of gay teachers is on the rise (Good News for Dumbledore). EIA Mike makes fun of the notion that performance pay is sweeping the nation just because NYC is going to do it (It’s a Performance Pay Tsunami!). Speaking of which: Merit Pay Mania (Quick And Ed). There’s also lots about merit pay and NCLB in Swift & Changeable (Kahlenberg on Al Shanker, Tough Liberals, and Teacher Merit Pay). Though I have to admit I’m a little sick of Shanker and Kahlenberg. Sorry!. Meanwhile, Dana Goldstein of TAPPED writes hopefully about progressive parents choosing public schools (ANOTHER LOOK AT EDUCATION AND INEQUALITY).
