On Deadline tells us that “sudents” are giving $2M to presidential candidates so far, assuming most of it comes from parents (Toddlers giving to Obama). Eduwonkette says she’s on the KIPP bandwagon, at least when it comes to extended learning (What lessons does KIPP offer for urban education reform?). The folks at TLN give kudos to the LA Times for including classroom voices (LA Times Featuring Teacher Bloggers). The AFTies highlight the news that childcare workers are going to be unionized now, along with paras in NYC (Today, She Has A Union). Does that make UPK more or less costly, I wonder? The Wonks remind us it’s carnival time (Carnival-Carnival). Elena Silva from TQATE posts about the NTC report on teacher turnover costs (Money’s Worth for New Teachers). Jenny D. is happy to be included in a new report on covering classrooms (Hechinger’s New Publication).
