I heard last week that EdWeek associate editor Jeff Archer recently left for a new job at New Leaders for New Schools. Speaking of new jobs, former Philly Enquirer star Dale Mezzacappa was walking around at EWA with the Philly Notebook on her badge, signaling that she’s likely to be doing more work for them in the near future. I had the pleasure of meeting reporter Amy Waldman down in NOLA, so I assume that means she’s working on a followup to her terrific Atlantic piece. I also heard that somebody is working on a biography of Paul Vallas, or maybe it’s a ghosted autobiography. I also ran into Tom Toch, who said that a new piece from him would soon be coming out in The Washington Monthly. Last but not least, I hear that one can’t-be-named-yet national reporter is leaving the beat to cover the NYC schools. Crazy, or brilliant.
