More concern about racial disparities in special education, this time in New York. The New York Post’s Kenneth Lovett and Carl Campanile say don’t forget the achievement gap either.

And, while Condi Rice is rebuilding Iraq, her cousin wants to rebuild public schools here…uh oh. Joanne Jacobs notes the irony that just as colleges are starting to de-emphasize the SAT, some employers are starting to emphasize it…Also, don’t miss Anne Applebaum’s Washington Post look at how we teach history, pegged to Brown but really larger.
