Reports to read: ES takes a look at pensions in Rhode Island and what’s happening there. Little state but big implications. And the new report on harassment from AAUW is worth a look. Important issue and as opposed to past ones the measures here are tighter.
Op-eds: If this is the best NYT’s Michael Winerip can come up with to criticize Tennessee about then Race to the Top implementation there must be going a lot better than I thought. At TIME Jon Schnur takes a look at why parents think their own school is great and the nation is a mess.
