|Katie Couric after reading Ed Notes on her 60 Minutes TEP segment|
NOTE: I revised this as my column this week for The Wave.
So, how much fun was it to receive an email from CBS today touting Katie and her piece?
Hello,Hmmm. I think I'll send my list of questions to Jenifer.
This week on 60 Minutes Overtime, Katie Couric Katie Couric discusses her report on the ground-breaking New York City school known as TEP (The Equity Project), her own experience with mentoring students, and the accusation that teachers are "greedy."

Let me know if you have any questions.
See video of last night’s 60 min: segment on TEP Charter school, featuring Joel Klein attack on tenure and celebrating the fact that Zeke Vanderhoek fired two of his teachers – that he had so carefully recruited. One was a sped teacher from Arizona who had moved to NYC to take the job.
Strangely, the segment never mentions the large class sizes that supposedly allows him to pay $125,000 per teacher; instead Couric claims the trade off was that teachers had to take on additional admin responsibilities.
For my earlier post on this school: Zeke Vanderhoek, relentless self-promoter
Does the school have a library? a librarian? a school nurse? a social worker? guess not. What is its attrition rate? Anyone know?
