Anti-Zero Sum! Walmart, Campus Life, Pipe Bombs And More! Plus Superintendent News, Title IX Suits, And The SEC’s Blog Game

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 17:44:15 +0000

Scroll down for jobs. Sara Mead on zero-sum thinking in education. Phil Burgoyne-Allen on buses. Speaking of zero-sum, Chad Aldeman and Max Marchitello explain why pension reform doesn’t have to lead to bad outcomes for current or retired teachers. Thinking about a piece of work this week it occurred to me that I’ve never seen a […]

New Video: School Transportation

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 12:57:06 +0000

School buses are safe and bus drivers are often cherished figures for kids – it’s the first school system adult most kids see in the morning and the last one in the afternoon.  Unfortunately, the good news ends there. Buses are environmentally harmful, inefficient and needlessly costly, and the way we organize transportation today works […]



Election Reax, More TFA Positioning, Choice & Information

Wed, 08 Nov 2017 13:13:02 +0000

I’m tweeting some election reaction here. I’d keep an eye on what happened in Maine with Medicaid, that’s important on the policy but also the politics and impacts education, too. From Ed Next here’s an interesting look on how more school choice changes informational markets. As predicted, the issue of TFA and its audiences is […]



Teach For America And Its Audiences, We Work School, Accountability, Betsy DeVos Still Here, Obama Guidance, Not So Much…Food Ideas, More!

Tue, 07 Nov 2017 21:49:52 +0000

Yesterday, off-edu, I asked what was going on with Ryan Zinke, who isn’t living up to billing on public lands policy. Don’t miss this 74 package on accountability. Betsy DeVos is not leaving. She went through a lot to get the job. But, the, ‘who, me?’, no one was at the scene of the crime […]



What’s Going On With Ryan Zinke?

Mon, 06 Nov 2017 22:05:22 +0000

Off-edu, I take a look at Ryan Zinke in U.S. News & World Report. When President Trump announced his selection of Ryan Zinke to lead the Department of Interior, it landed pretty well. Zinke was a well-regarded former Navy SEAL and congressman known as a champion of protecting public lands and for being attentive to […]



The Tax Bill And Education, O’Keefe, Mehta, Dynarski, Race & Higher Ed, Race And Schools, The Mess In Online, And More!

Scroll down for edubjobs and a fish pictures. Bonnie O’Keefe on teacher turnover and assumptions about it. I endorse the idea that you should read Jal Mehta. Mark Dynarski wants to know where the research is in state ESSA plans. Ha ha ha ha ha ha. No, seriously,  he does. Most sectors have to figure […]

Wed, 01 Nov 2017 18:00:42 +0000

Here’s a just launched search, and the kind of role that doesn’t come along that often: CEO at Urban Teachers (pdf). Urban Teachers has prepared nearly 1,000 residents serving almost 150 schools in Baltimore, Washington, D.C. and Dallas-Fort Worth; This is an opportunity for a leader who can build upon UT’s accomplishments and help further […]



Lucinda Williams – Sweet Old World

Off education but on an education and music blog I review Monday night’s Lucinda Williams stop in D.C.
