Friday Reading List: Better on Tuesday

I'm sure your Friday was spent sifting through the hundreds of comments submitted for the Race to the Top program. Now that you've digested those, check out these good reads:

*Gov. Tim Pawlenty, a Republican from Minnesota who knows his stuff when it comes to education, is being talked up as a 2012 presidential candidate. (Nope, it's not too early to be talking about that.)

*The recession is forcing some teacher furloughs, despite the $100 billion in stimulus aid for schools.

*Politico has more whether Sen. Christopher J. Dodd, D-Conn., will decide to step into the chairmanship of the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee.

*Over at the National Journal's Education Experts blog, some big names are debating school turnarounds.

*Mike Petrilli of Flypaper Fame, and Tom Loveless of the Brookings Institution take a look at the impact of the No Child Left Behind law on gifted kids. Eduwonk has more.

*Speaking of NCLB, over at The School Law Blog, Mark Walshtakes a look at all of the state court rulings over the last few months that have dealt with NCLB.
