Richard Whitmire: Why I Put Myself On A Success Academy Writing Diet

Mon, 11 Dec 2017 16:18:19 +0000

By Richard Whitmire I totally get the outsized coverage we’re seeing of Eva Moskowitz and Success Academy charter schools in New York. In years past, I’ve been guilty of the same. But there’s a reason I pulled back. First, let’s discuss Eva’s appeal, which is hard to resist. Moskowitz is one of those rare, swashbuckling […]

Reminder, we’ve got 34 ESSA reviews coming tomorrow. Department of Education explainer on Endrew F. case implications.

Wed, 06 Dec 2017 21:34:13 +0000

This Rick Hess column about reviewing ESSA plans – that I assume is aimed at our ESSA review project even though he doesn’t say it – is kind of interesting. For starters, I had thought Rick was in the advising and analysis business, but apparently that’s wrong and they’re running some sort of school or […]

Friday Links – Short And Sweet (The Milk Part) But With Side Hustles! And Real Hustles, Too.

Kirsten Schmitz says teachers are underpaid, shouldn’t need side hustles, and there is a pension reform angle to that story. Michael Flynn pleading guilty today in the Mueller probe. Good time to point out that among his other business dealings was taking money from the Turkish government to discredit charter schools in the United States […]
