Plans Unveiled for 'Bracey Memorial Fellowship'

First we learned of Gerry Bracey's death and then came the news of Ted Sizer's passing. The world of education reform has, unfortunately, lost two of its most passionate advocates this week. If you haven't seen it already, please read my story on Ted Sizer on our Web page today. A story on Gerry Bracey is scheduled to appear in the print edition of Education Week next week.

In the meantime, some of Bracey's friends in academia have announced plans to create a fellowship in his name. If organizers can collect $25,000, they plan to give it " to a doctoral student with a research-based, hard-nosed commitment to further truth, equity, and social justice." It seems a fitting tribute.

Details are available at the Web site for the Education and the Public Interest Center (EPIC) at the University of Colorado at Boulder.
