Sara Mead on Acela Corridor bias and charter schools. Here’s a video explaining the Michigan teacher pension situation. This discussion tomorrow featuring Mike Feinberg and KIPP alums should be an interesting and atypical DC education event. RSVP via the link. As expected, the Trump Administration is taking steps to change the federal approach on education civil […]

Here’s an idea: A new customized “senior” year of high school and expanded pre-K education. The feds can invest to make it happen. Chad Aldeman and Kristen Schmitz explain why teacher pension plans don’t work for teachers. Full analysis here. And a NY Daily News op-ed here. 74 write-up here. Also Chad revisits the Pension […]

Three Year High School?

Thu, 15 Jun 2017 12:22:41 +0000

In U.S. News & World Report I propose an idea to finance pre-K education for four-year olds, give high school students more options in their final year, and help with equity. Sound too good to be true? It might be, but let’s debate it and other ideas: What we think of as the core of […]

Max McConkey And Art, New Charter Data, Voucher Debate, Free Speech Or Orwellian Paternalism? DeVos Profile, DeVos On The Stump, Melvoin Profile, Gig Economy And Edu, More!

Tue, 13 Jun 2017 14:05:42 +0000

Free speech on campus and beyond. And here’s Larry Summers saying it’s “Orwellian Paternalism.” Jim Blew is a great get for the Department of Education if they can pull this off – and another Democrat, which is interesting though as we discussed the other day largely inconsequential in this circus. But, despite that, I’d like to […]

Friday Fish! Candlers On The Water

Fri, 09 Jun 2017 12:30:46 +0000

Matt Candler founded 4.0 Schools to help create innovative school models. It’s working. Candler’s not unknown around here. He’s known for being against the “sucks less” approach to school quality and in a Kevin Bacon-like way he’s one degree removed from Big Red. Here’s his dad and his son out for a day fishing earlier this spring. That’s […]

Publishing snafu had tomorrow’s fish pictures up today, sorry about that. They’ll be up for good tomorrow.  Today: Bonnie O’Keefe on student teacher interactions in ECE and policy. Hanna Skandera did a good job in New Mexico. It’s too bad the Trump team was too dysfunctional to figure out how to get her aboard. She’s […]

The Rock And Tough Love, Purdue And Kaplan, Title I Inequity, Impact Aid Ideas, Grocery Stores And Schools, Stephen Carter On Reading, Campus Politics, CMO Growth, Music Reviews, More!

Mon, 05 Jun 2017 17:37:13 +0000

At The 74, Hailly Korman and I warm to the idea of Mr. President The Rock. We also like his genuine interest in helping adjudicated youth but in an open letter we urge him to make sure there is as much love as tough in his tough love approach. Off-edu, I review some musical acts, […]

Music Reviews

Mon, 05 Jun 2017 13:26:42 +0000

America Succeeds runs a music-themed blog GratefulEd. Jason Gaulden is the mastermind behind what’s fun mashup of education and music. I have a post there today reviewing some shows from the past few months. It’s a mashup, too, but includes Stevie Nicks, Tedeschi Trucks, Angaleena Presley, Dry Branch Fire Squad, Tracy Grammer, Sam Gleaves and […]

An Open-Letter To The Rock

Mon, 05 Jun 2017 13:23:00 +0000

Hailly Korman and I pen (pixel?) an open letter in The 74 to The Rock, Dwayne Johnson. He might be Mr. President The Rock one day soon – and he’d certainly be an improvement on the status quo. Johnson is into juvenile justice and has some great ideas on it but we urge him to balance […]
