ES’ Sara Mead says beware the restructuring ruse in the new Ed Next. ES’ Joe Williams and Tom Toch look at one effort in San Diego in this report.
BTW–while you’re at Ed Next, check the whole thing out. They deserve some credit, creating an interesting mag/journal isn’t all that hard in the first 24 months or so when you can clear the shelves of good ideas and writing. But keeping it interesting for a lot longer than that is not such an easy feat and they’ve done it very well. It’s a must read among a wide swath of folks. This issue, Guthrie, Davis, Williams, and Peterson (Julie! But Paul is there, too…), it’s great stuff.
