Guest Post: Time for an Education Beer Summit By Kevin R. Kosar

Arne Duncan is threatening waivers and Congress is grumbling. There is howling on the right and left about the feds being too pushy and punishing schools and teachers.  Anecdotes and accusations fly, and lawyers have leapt into the edu-fray.

Education analyst and professional whiskey expert Kevin Kosar took his son fishing along with a friend. They hooked into this big (31″) catfish near Fletcher’s Cove on the Potomac.  Also – and Potomac-related –  don’t miss his take on CRS.

The Future Of America is Nonwhite, But Are Our Schools Ready? Good Work At Goodwill, Must-Read Leondhart On College Diversity, Charter Snubs In Massachusetts, Pension Problems Everywhere, Billionaires And Advocacy, ESSA Debate, Sorta Fish, More!

It’s Friday, and again no fish pictures! There are some in the queue but it’s been busy around here. One link at the bottom and whiskey/education/congress expert Kevin Kosar goes fishing all the time. If you’re going to come after Chad Aldeman, especially on pension policy, get your facts straight first. Underneath the current craziness, I […]
