Great stuff today!

  • Why is it that all of a sudden, we have so many strong readers on remediation?  Veteran teacher and curriculum designer Marion Brady gives us some insight into this.
  • At our Parents Across America Denver chapter kickoff last week, we had a wonderful conversation with my friend Karran Harper Royal, an education activist and mother of a child with a disability in New Orleans’ Recovery School District.  Check out the video.
  • The Young Turks, a new show on Current TV, spent a few minutes talking about the fines that are imposed upon students at Chicago’s Noble Charter franchise.  Is this what we should be doing, from a discipline standpoint?  West Denver Prep and KIPP have very similar responses to relatively minor infractions.
