Wildcat: Did you know Kentucky’s Anthony Davis went to a charter school in Chicago? And in NY Deborah Kenny’s team won the
Charter School Athletic Association championship (there is no state charter championship per se). You’ll want to keep an eye out for her new book later this year.
Tom Edsall takes a look at college education and voting behavior, historically and implications now. Sandra Stotsky looks at reading and schools of ed. NSNO’s (BW client) Neerev Kingsland takes an interesting look at value-added data. And Memphis Blues again?
Interesting story out of Milwaukee on class size and pay. Apparently the teachers union leader there worked hard behind the scenes with leaders from both parties but was unable to get this gambit done.
Meanwhile, we have a national high school graduation rate in the 70s, the low 6os for minority kids, 8 percent of low-income kids getting a BA by age 24, etc..etc…and we’re arguing about whether or not we have a serious education problem? Helpful! I can’t wait for the feature about how healthy and fiscally responsible Americans actually are.
Fun time at last night’s
