What Everyone Should Be Reading

I know it's early in the week to be assigning reading, but trust me when I tell you that this will be worth your time. (Can we say the same for all the reading we assign to our students? Ahhh, but I digress ... I suppose that's a conversation we can save for another time.)

If you haven't already curled up with our special "Quality Counts" issue that came out last week, you've gotta do it. It doesn't matter that I'm wandering into shameless self-promotion (promotion of EdWeek, I mean). This is a terrific issue, packed with good articles and research about the movement for academic standards. And you don't even have to be a subscriber to get it! An electronic open house lets everyone read it for free through Thursday. (If it were possible to put out nice platters of wine and cheese electronically, we would, but there are real-world limitations on some things.)

If you have time for only one story in this wonderful issue, don't miss the thoughtful and comprehensive overview, which puts the current campaign in context and schools you on the dialogue.
