The Gadfly Daily’s week in review

The Education Gadfly

Apple had Fordham’s bloggers all abuzz this week: On Common
Core Watch, Kathleen cautioned that expense and questionable durability would keep
iPads from replacing textbooks anytime soon
, while Chris countered at
Stretching the School Dollar that betting
against Steve Jobs’ company tends to be a losing proposition
. On Flypaper, Checker
used Apple’s outsourcing of iPhone production to China
to question whether America’s
economic future may depend on our schools’ ability to teach hard work and diligence
.

Fordham’s newest blogger, Choice Words editor Adam Emerson,
argued that participants in the current school choice debate might
benefit from a history lesson
. Terry wrote on the Ohio Gadfly Daily that Ohio
Governor John Kasich could learn
a thing or two about school funding
from Florida’s Rick Scott. On the national front,
Mike warned that while many in Washington
praise ESEA flexibility in theory, they are more
than a little uncomfortable with increased state autonomy
in education.
