Interesting discussion at the NY Times; Should books for children be political?
Speaking of books for kids, I love this one - My First Kafka (which would be Runaways, Rodents, and Giant Bugs).
Recess - it IS for learning. Great article from The Atlantic on one teacher's research.
The arguing continues in the Seattle Pre-K discussion. The other initiative - not the City's - Seattle Initiative 107, has filed an ethics complaint with the City, charging that there were meetings with City Council members that violate the ethics rules.
As I previously reported, the Sacramento School Board will be meeting this Thursday to vote on whether to appoint Superintendent Banda as their new superintendent. As well, they will also vote to approve his contract. There has not been a start date set but I think he would likely leave SPS by the end of the July.
What's on your mind?
