Thursday Bits

By Michael Regnier

RIP Steve Jobs, who had some views on education.

The Chicago teacher-blogger who blogged her school lunches went public. Too bad her kids can’t meet Chef Bennett.

Yesterday’s confab on college-ready data quality is viewable online. So is Ed Sector’s event about improving the ed schools.

If you’ve had enough football analogies, Michael Goldstein is ready for a high dose of basketball.

  1. Yes, Mr. Jobs was wise in many ways, but especially in the way that he understood that nothing can compare with a human being in the classroom: a teacher. Like so many Americans, he was educated in public schools and grew up to be a phenomenally successful innovator and entrepreneur. This is a good time to remember that although the United States has long had mediocre test scores for our fourth graders, our adults have dazzled the world in every field of human endeavor. And most attended our public schools, perhaps our greatest institution and the bedrock of our democracy.

    Our public schools are under attack now, but I believe average Americans will fight to save them and will prevail in the end.
