Word is that NYT education reporter David Herszenhorn has in fact left (escaped?) and is already down in DC covering Congress. [Read more about and an outdated but still reasonable look at where education reporters go to when they are no longer education reporters here
.] No word yet on who's going to replace him in covering the NYC schools. How about Columbia's LynNell Hancock
(right), who recently wrote a great send-up of the NYC reform effort in The Nation and who still may not have forgiven my for my ambush interview of her (here
)? Or maybe Elizabeth Green
(left), who just left US News to come cover the city schools for The Sun? Or even Joe Williams
, who used to cover the city and now is stuck doing DFER? Of course, I'm sure it will be someone from inside the paper.
