Urban Ed

It’s all about New Deals! In the Harvard Law and Policy Review (journal of the American Constitution Society) Sara Mead and I offer up a New Deal for Urban Schools. Human Capital, new schools, R & D, and pre-K along with a healthy focus on results and more than a dash of federal dollars is our recipe. Check out, also, articles by Joel Klein, Stefanie Sanford and Steve Seleznow, and Charles J. Ogletree, Jr. & Susan Eaton while you’re there.

And, speaking of urban education, the idea that David Harris and I proffered about mayors chartering schools didn’t go over so well with the powers that be in SF! Bart Peterson continues to be the caste-breaker among mayors on the education issue.
