I read them... so you don’t have to:
About the Ravitch op-ed (see below), Eduwonk asks “didn’t we try this already?” (States Right?). The AFT blog is concerned about the NYT piece on New Orleans from a couple of weeks ago (Predictable Sign Of The Times) -- namely whether the focus should be on poverty or school reform. School closings are getting too much coverage, says Sari Levy at Schools For Tomorrow (School closures bring out the drama queens). Educators and researchers don’t usually get along, writes Eduwonkette -- except in one case (Cool people you should know). EdWize lets us all know that Ms. Frizzle is back to blogging and has some things to say (Ms. Frizzle on TFA).
