The Gad-Blast: Best Of The Gadfly & The NewsBlast
If you've been reading along this week, you've already seen most of what the weekly newsletters have to say. But there are some new things, too.
At the PEN NewsBlast, there are posts about financial inequalities in Illinois, more about the FY08 budget, some things from the TC Record (which I never seem to get to), an English-only pledge of allegiance, more about NCLB and gifted students, and a fascinating little article about just how hard school boards (and board members) are to contact.
Over at The Gadfly, they're looking for fellows, fighting against fatalism, railing against What Works, and... I got nothing. Oh, they pick up the item I highlighted earlier this week about what happens when teachers' performance bonuses go public.
