Boxing Day line

Posted By on Mon, Dec 26, 2011 at 4:29 PM

Slow day and it's now over to you. Final words:

* TEACH FOR AMERICA CRITICISM: For education reformers: a takedown of Teach for America. Andrew Hartman, a professor of history at Illinois State University, finds elitism, anti-unionism, a "pedagogy of surveillance" (see his take on KIPP schools) and respect for teachers only insofar as TFA participants are concerned. Agree/disagree but it raises a raft of issues relevant to classroom performance, teachers and school structure.
