The Education Gadfly Show

With Rick back in the saddle, our intrepid co-hosts jump right into this week?s education-reform news, discussing the ?Rose Parks? of school choice, GOP governors, and the ?war of ideas.? Amber gapes at Boston Public Schools?s teacher salary and benefits structure, while Chris embarks on a campaign against poor spelling and tyrants everywhere.
Mike and Janie bite off big topics in this week’s podcast—from the repeal of SB5 to racial imbalances in gifted-ed programs to online learning. Amber wants CRPE to name names and Chris starts subbing for the pension benefits. You’re gonna want to sit down for this.
Everyone?s favorite guest host, Dave DeSchryver, joins Mike to discuss the 2011 NAEP results, ESEA reauth, and charter schools in middle-class locales. Amber dissects the Chinese education system and Chris extols the virtues of eating red meat.

Mike and Janie hold down the fort this week, discussing the Harkin-Enzi bill, same-sex schooling, and St. Louis (both its new gifted-ed program and the Cardinals). Amber evaluates teacher-prep programs and Chris finds a novel way to hide a bald spot.

Mike takes back the driver?s seat, with Rick, once-again, in his sidecar. Together, they offer up substantive takes on Harkin?s new ESEA bill, Jerry Brown?s API veto, and the role of for-profits in education; chat with Amber about controlled-choice programs; and go on a sting operation with Chris. Then they ride off into the sunset.
