Don’t forget Tennessee — our Governor has called a special session of the legislature for next week to make tenure/evaluation changes (to include student achievement data) as well as some other changes in anticipation of our RTTT application being filed. I’ve written about it a bit, but from what I’m hearing around here, we’re putting together a pretty good package.
Here’s some links as to what’s going on:

I wonder if states that are getting help from management consulting firms to put together their applications will do better on RtTT. Always interesting to see how private sector/public sector partnerships work out.
Does anyone know if Mass Insight — the group that recently snatched up DCPS staffer Justin Cohen — is advising on RtTT? Seems like they’d be in a good position to do so…
