- I'm definitely going to have to make a list and cross-reference all these new education groups. But I did see where Carol Rava Treat went ( she was formerly in the district as a "strategic" director) . Turns out that the Gates Foundation (big surprise) and Viacom have created another program, this one called Get Schooled (so urban!). It's a national program to get young people to graduate from high school and college, etc. It looks like a 5-year program. (One of my favorite of their goals from their press page "mobilizing influentials.") Ms. Treat is their new director of strategy and operations.
- There's yet another Times' op-ed about teachers getting evaluated by the Superintendent. Interestingly, the Times didn't bother to show up at the press conference yesterday touting the new teachers contract. I guess they were too busy writing her op-ed for her.
- The need for better education from quotes by Christine O'Donnell, Tea Party candidate. “Everything that he is saying is un-factual" Neither OED or Merriam's list unfactual as a word. "I wanted to make this race about the issue: how we're going to get back jobs in Delaware, how we're going to defend the homeland of our security." Let us know how that works out.
