The Education Gadfly Show

This week, Mike and Rick light up California for its half-baked jurisprudence, smoke out why Tampa Bay-area teachers are so sullen, and have an enlightened conversation about whether students caught with drugs should lose their federal student aid. Tom Loveless talks arithmetic, and News of the Weird is a scream. Whoop there it is, all in 15 minutes!

This week, Mike's mad that leaders of chronically failing schools are doing yard work while their buildings burn, Rick can't understand why David Brooks wants fat kids to gorge on marshmallows, and neither is sure whether Jackie Robinson swung both ways. We've got an interview with ABCTE President Dave Saba, and News of the Weird is TRU. Liam's mom says, ''It's the best?Education Gadfly Show?yet!''?

This week, Mike and Rick take shop class to task, debate whether unions should keep their hands off charters, and ask why all EMOs can't be more like Edison. Checker's furious at Oprah, and Education News of the Weird is unstructured and silly. I pity the fool who doesn't have 15 minutes for this week's show!?

This week, Mike and guest host Liam Julian contemplate whether states can be trusted to guarantee rigorous curricula and standards, if Omaha is doing the right thing by segregating its districts, and why Joel Klein won't give principals more bonus money. We've got an interview with Arizona education reformer Matthew Ladner, and Education News of the Weird is, well, boring. All this in 15 minutes? You know it.
