Friday Reading List

• Apparently the contract under consideration in Detroit would create its own version of New York City's infamous "rubber rooms."

• For an up-close look at the effects of central-office hiring processes, seniority provisions and working conditions, check out Emily Alpert's terrific three-part series in the Voice of San Diego.

• Michele McNeil gives some Race to the Top application pointers over at Politics K-12.

Happy holidays from me and the Education Week team.
