March 2007: The Month In Review (Updated)

By Alexander Russo — April 03, 2007 1 min read

NOW WITH NOISE REDUCTION

Blogs are usually all about the moment, and not so much about the long view.

To help address that, and to try something new, here’s a roundtable that includes me and three All-Star journalists (Schemo, Banchero, and Toppo) talking about the biggest stories of the month, winners and losers, and other things. Download and listen here. Or, if you’re feeling fancy and want to try an embedded audio player, here:

Get past the amateurish hosting and so-so sound quality and you’ll hear about Bong Hits For Jesus, whether states can hold out if NCLB doesn’t reauthorize until 2009, if and how Reading First is a big story, the big Gates gifts to KIPP and DC students, and even a little bit about the Nelnet giveaway. Who was the month’s loser -- Gene Hickock, Reading First, or the Fordham folks?Listen and find out.
