Whitmire on charters and hornets nests. He makes a point we made in the Bellwether slide deck on charters, the growth means charters and districts are going to be bumping into each other more for good or ill.
More Hillary Clinton charter fallout (which is almost entirely irrelevant after Paris). Wash Post editorial board here. Matt Barnum with a measured walk through of a statement that while problematic wasn’t entirely off-base.
We’re getting reports that Derrell Bradford didn’t like Randi Weingarten’s recent op-ed on charter schools and school discipline.
This is revolting.
Michael Dannenberg on campus unrest.
Seems like philosopher welders are going to be easier to find than philosopher kings? Phillip Burgoyne-Allen takes a look at an Obama – Rubio convergence on education. The teacher “shortage” seems to move reporters more than it does school districts. A North Carolina Opportunity Culture teacher shares her story.

The link to the Whitmire article goes to an article about an asteroid buzzing the earth. Interesting and terrifying, but not what I was looking for!
Thanks – a glimpse at my free time reading. But fixed. And of the various notes people sent on this yours was the most amusing and least annoyed.

As is usual, the commentators at The Washington Post get it better than ed writer Jo Ann Armao (who once told a teacher that he didn’t know anything about education).
Derek Bradford is so quick to mount his high horse and play the race card that he misses the saddle by a few feet.
Typing of Bradford, it is always great to point out that he doesn’t want children to have the expensive private education he received.
The article about teacher shortage is decent. I understand there is not a lot of money going around but there also seems to always be a shortage of teacher. This seems interesting when it can be difficult to find a teaching job. The articles say there are teacher shortages but are not specific to where so interested teachers can apply and be hired. I think either these districts need to do a better job of posting and advertising their positions or the news is building things out of portion.
