The NY Times Wants to Build a Better Teacher

Check the back page of the main section of today's NY Times. Of course, the problem with education is that we need to build better teachers because the ones we have are doing such a lousy job. The back page lists lots of ed deformers (Kristof, Brooks, Kenny) and a few true reformers. Delve into the panels and we do find Monty Neill and semi-reformer Pedro Noguera. I would love to get to ask Kenny about her teacher turnover and student attrition rates. http://nytschoolsfortomorrow.com/agenda.php

  1. I want to vomit when I see the names of 4/5 of the people presenting at this NY Times conference. The only one missing to complete the outrage is Thomas Friedman.
