Friday Reading

By Sara Mead — October 08, 2010 1 min read

Apologies for being a lousy blogger this week. I was traveling in Houston this week, where I visited some very cool early childhood education programs--KIPP:SHINE and the Children’s Learning Institute at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, which, among other programs, operates the Texas School Ready! program to improve the quality of teaching across a range of early childhood settings in Texas. It was a great and thought provoking learning experience for me, and one I’ll share more about next week.

In the meantime, please check out the two organizations’ websites, as well as these links:


  • Great Core Knowledge Blog post on Singapore Math
  • New TNTP report on the “what next” of teacher evaluations
  • Adorable photos from JumpStart’s Read for the Record day yesterday
  • Justin Cohen on the school turnaround “Manifesto” by urban superintendents in today’s Washington Post.
