In South Carolina, David Chadwell takes on the task the U.S. Department of Education ducks here in Washington.

Chadwell includes a link to the ASCD special report on Teaching Boys.

And, there’s a link for the 5th Annual Teacher-to-Teacher Conference in Columbia, S.C., in March.

I have a suggestion for a project for Chadwell to take on, which I blogged on here. The South Carolina single-sex initiatives are probably the most ambitious in the nation. If we’re going to offer up single-sex education as the best solution to the boy troubles (a strategy I think is too limiting), and if the DOE refuses to help out with research, why not solicit foundation money to sponsor research that’s of national value?
