After four years of highs and lows, Marilyn Rhames is ending her award-winning Education Week Teacher blog.


After a small but loud group of white teachers pushback against my Ed Week op-ed about race in education, I felt compelled to follow-up with another post that doubles down while also apologizes (but only just a little).


Though Chicago Public Schools took out a $1.1 billion loan to pay its bills through the 2015-16 school year, none of the money would pay the $700 million pension payment that's due again next year.


Last week I particpated in a roundtable blogging discussion called "Confronting Racial Injustice in Schools" Education Week's Op-EDucation page, and it was sad and shocking to read the racist and culturally insensitive comments of some readers—especially because these people may very well be "educators."
