Eduwonk Blows Town…Barr Blogs

I’m out of blogging range next week but great guest blogging action awaits you. Steve Barr, founder of Green Dot Public Schools, LA activist, longtime Democratic activist, and all around good guy is going to stand in next Monday to Friday.

If you’re not familiar with him, here’s an interview with Barr (that includes a great illustration of what he might look like in 20 years) and here’s an ES report on Los Angeles that discusses Barr’s role there. Green Dot’s an interesting charter school EMO, it’s unionized, pays its teachers more than local scale, and they seem pretty happy with things. That’s a good example that seems to piss a lot of people off…maybe he’ll explain why?

I’m back Tuesday the 5th. Happy Labor Day.
