Joanne Jacobs Posts this Week's Carnival of Education


As usual, the topics presented in submissions to the Carnival of Education are so diverse that Joanne Jacobs, the host of this week's edition, threw up her hands and said the theme of the carnival is: "We don't need no stinking theme."

Blog entries include a discussion about whether homework is busywork, a proposal that the school year should be 200 days, and an analysis of a study that says Experience Corps tutors (senior citizens) have helped struggling readers.

A blog entry from Curriculum Matters about the gender gap in reading in Japan is part of the carnival. Check out the comments from readers on suggestions for how to engage boys in reading.
