Eduwonkette believes the world of education policy will—or should—come to a halt in recognition of the University of Kansas' victory last night in the NCAA National Championship game. (Or is this just her way of saying she's taking the week off?)

Incidentally, if your students are talking about the game today, you might be able to capture their attention with a bit of relevant educational trivia: Did you know that the KU chant of "Rock Chalk Jayhawk" was originally created, in 1886, by the university's science club, to be amended later (per usual) by an English professor? Not to mention that it was reportedly praised by Theodore Roosevelt, who did some other stuff, too. (Hey, that covers several subject areas. ...)
