Edujob: Program Director, Character and K12 Education Program @ Kern Family Foundation

Thu, 01 Dec 2016 12:45:18 +0000

Here’s a dynamic role at a foundation committed to thinking about character education: The Kern Family Foundation operates on the belief that the United States’ flourishing depends on the ability of its communities to form citizens of good character, while also instilling the technical abilities that allow young people to support themselves with meaningful work […]

Plus: Steve Fleishman With The Eduwonkiest Non-Eduwonk Post Ever, Wisconsin News And Ravitch Could Have Stopped Trump And Chose Not To! Student Speech, When Does McWhorter Sleep?

Another Bellwether Education blog training coming in February. Applications due in December. More here. Last week I offered some thoughts in U.S. News & World Report on lecturing Trump voters that were really about the rampant assumption of monocausality since the election. I voted for Clinton. I’m no fan of Trump. But all of his […]

Betsy Devos – Ed Sec Designee

Mon, 28 Nov 2016 14:27:28 +0000

It’s Betsy DeVos. Turns out President-elect Trump’s choice for education secretary was hidden in plain sight. You say you want to do a big push for choice so you pick a prominent school choice booster (she’s flirted with Common Core and for the types that approach anti-Common Core with religious fervor she’s suspect, but that’s […]

Edujob: CEO Teach Plus

Wed, 23 Nov 2016 18:49:27 +0000

Here’s a pretty big edujob, Teach Plus is looking for a new CEO. Interesting organization that plays on policy and practice and a pretty fluid time in the sector. The mission of Teach Plus is to empower excellent, experienced teachers to take leadership over key policy and practice issues that affect their students’ success. The […]

It’s DeVos! Lecture Your Relatives, Donate To Your School, Pearson! Spec Ed, NC Chief Race, Trump’s MO? Happy Thanksgiving!

Wed, 23 Nov 2016 18:38:53 +0000

In U.S. News I offer a Thanksgiving thought counter to the ‘go lecture your backwards relatives or ignore them altogether’ sentiment swirling on social media. People vote for lots of reasons, a lot of people are frustrated and hurting, so maybe go easy? And for all the talk of checking privilege, check yours. Besides, politics is […]

Eduwonk: The Divisiveness Issue! Is It Identity Politics, Campus Culture, Or….The SAT? Pensions And Beer, DC Charter Performance, Coal Country School Finance, Grit, Hansel On Reading, Hess On EDSec, Oscar The Grouch Gets 2 And 20, Pavel Datsyuk Gets His Degree! And More…

Let’s start with some catastrophic pension news that should have everyone on edge about an age of austerity: For a half-century, retired Labatt employees have been entitled to as much as a 12-pack of free beer every week, an unusual perk that Anheuser-Busch InBev — the brewery’s owner for the last 21 of those years […]

New Education Insider Data – Trump Ed Policy

Fri, 18 Nov 2016 02:51:55 +0000

New data from the Whiteboard Advisors Education Insider survey panel (pdf). Looks at higher education policy, K-12 policy and choice, and overall polarization in the coming months. A lot of interesting stuff.

Teaching Trump/Scaring The Children!

Thu, 17 Nov 2016 12:30:43 +0000

Bob Weir has a fun act called Scaring The Children. This post, unfortunately, is not about them. Rick Hess and Checker Finn urge a tamping down of the anti-Trump talk in schools: We’re no fans of the president-elect, whose behavior has frequently been appalling, whose policy ignorance is vast, and who appears to lack any […]

Trump Advice: Don’t Call Me Shirley. Trump’s Education Hands, Choice & Charters, Union Infighting, Friedrichs Redux? Massachuetts Charters, Van Jones

Mon, 14 Nov 2016 20:21:43 +0000

This is good advice: If you ever find yourself writing a sentence in which Donald Trump is the subject, maybe don’t start it with “surely.” With regard to education that means everyone telling you what a Trump Administration will or won’t do really has no idea about what they’re talking about. President-elect Trump doesn’t either, […]

Veterans Day

Fri, 11 Nov 2016 23:29:05 +0000

Never a bad time to thank veterans for their service and sacrifice. And probably not a bad week this year to revisit some of that World War I poetry we post here on Veterans Day from time to time and reflect on how fragile this all is. Also, as we consider what binds us and […]
