Teacher Tom: Does "Parenting" Stand in the Way of Growing?

We love our children, our parents, our spouses, and our friends, but, of course, we don't love all of them in the same way: there is a kind of love we have for a lover that is distinct from the love we have our parents. In turn, the l
New York Magazine’s Jonathan Chait Is Bragging Again About Charter Schools | janresseger
New York Magazine’s Jonathan Chait Is Bragging Again About Charter Schools Last week, New York Magazine ‘s Jonathan Chait published another of his long rants about the failure of public schools, the glories of charter schools, and all the reasons he disdains teachers unions. Chait begins: “In the dozen years since Barack Obama undertook the most dramatic education reform in half a century—proddi

Education Matters: Teacher fear in DCPS is real and palpable.
Teacher fear in DCPS is real and palpable. I have written many times about the lack of contact tracing, and social distancing, and how the dashboard shouldn't be believed. If the district cares, they sure haven't shown it, and the fear for many teachers and staff is real. I received this from a reader. I have edited it to take out anything identifying because, sadly, in DCPS, teachers have a lot
CURMUDGUCATION: Did DeVos Get A Raw Deal
Did DeVos Get A Raw Deal In today's National Review, Rick Hess is suggesting that Betsy DeVos got a raw deal, that attacks on her "have taken a torch to the basic standards of public discourse and democratic civility."

NYC Educator: The Post, with Little Evidence, Creates a Teacher Issue
The Post, with Little Evidence, Creates a Teacher Issue The Post has a piece suggesting teachers are at war with one another over who gets the vaccine.

(Let's disregard the fact that none of those quoted feel comfor
