Hijinks & Disappointments For Prizewinning School District

One particularly waggish friend asked me earlier today whether Eli Broad had toured New York City's infamous "rubber rooms" before giving the city its prize for urban school reform. I'm guessing not. Samuel Freedman updates on these holding tanks for teachers in today's Times (Where Teachers Sit, Awaiting Their Fates). I think the Voice broke this story before (here). Meanwhile, the school that was originally installed in the main administrative building for the NYC school system has been quietly moved elsewhere, and now disbanded, writes Jennifer Medina (Academy That Symbolized Innovation in Schools Is Closed). Talk about gimmicks -- and too bad for the kids and teachers who put everything into it.
