I’m down in New Orleans at the New Schools Venture Fund annual summit -- the Davos weekend of education, some would say. (Others would say it’s the convening of fancy suits out to destroy public education, starting with NOLA.) So far, everyone’s been nice to me, and I did have to beg to get an invitation, but of course that won’t stop me from biting the hand that feeds me if the self-importance level gets too high (or my sugar level gets too low). So far, I’ve seen NLNS’s Jon Schnur, tanned but not rested, he tells me, run into Lincoln Kaplan and Ben Wildavsky who I last saw at a Spencer Foundation event last summer, and many more who did not want to be named.
