Split Title?

Will urban education reform become like boxing? The Broad Foundation currently offers an annual $1 million prize for urban education. Now, the National School Boards Association is launching their own urban education award. McGraw-Hill is ponying up $5K for the NSBA award.

There is some overlap, for instance Norfolk, VA, a demonstrably improving school district and Boston, another system on the rise, are candidates for both awards. Still, will we have split titles and/or unified belts in the future? Stay tuned…

Tightwad Afterthought: Can’t McGraw-Hill do better than $5K? It’s emblematic of the cheap way educators get treated vis a vis the way things work in other industries. Or, can’t someone else kick-in?
