The Fly-Blast: Best of The PEN NewsBlast and the Fordham Gadfly

As per usual, it's too late in the week for me to do much more than point you to this week's Gadfly and NewsBlast and wish you the best.

Some worthwhile-looking posts from the Blast include PLAYING SCHOOL IN KATRINA�S WAKE, about the "new tangle of independently operated educational experiments" in NOLA, MANY STATES ARE LAX IN THEIR OVERSIGHT OF CHILD CARE CENTERS, which makes you wonder about how well states are going to monitor universal pre-K programs, and -- why not? THE CASE FOR NATIONAL STANDARDS IN SCHOOL REFORM.

Some interesting-seeming posts from The Gadfly include Three cheers for Steve Jobs, about Jobs' recent attack on teachers unions, X marks the spot, the Gadfly Show (Mr. Hess goes to Selma), reader nomination for big ideas in education, and Fordham is pregnant, in which a reader finds new ways to describe Fordham's awkward recent weeks on NCLB.
