The Education Gadfly Show

This week, Mike and Rick wonder why Texans don't like money, why Russian schools are resegregating, and how long before?02138?goes under. We've got an interview with a principal who paddles his students, and News of the Weird is plain inappropriate. There are no Mark Foley jokes in this 20-minute podcast.?
This week, Mike and Rick discuss the finer points of French pronunciation, the treasures of the Canadian frontier, and Eddie Murphy's lessons for closing the achievement gap. Tennessee's Reading First director, Jim Herman, laments the disgraceful events surrounding the program in recent days, and News of the Weird sees no evil.?This 20-minute podcast is all that and a bag of chips.

This week, Mike and Rick discuss private charter schools that teach religion and screw over poor kids, why the Pope is demanding school uniforms, and the?Wall Street Journal's incompetence. Art Levine chats about his new study on teacher education, and Education News of the Weird knows that good things come in small packages. Hugo Chavez thinks this 20 minute podcast smells of sulfur.

This week, Mike and Rick chirp about Fenty's haircut, strategies for good HOUSSEkeeping, and whether Bangalore is the new Cambridge. We've got an interview with Andy Smarick that will rock your socks, and News of the Weird isn't hurting anybody, man. If this 20-minute podcast is played in a forest, and nobody hears it, do bears have computers? Think about it.?

This week, Mike and Rick mock Malcolm Gladwell (and not because of his hair), praise the?Washington Post's Jay Mathews, and demand the right to sleep. We've got an interview with scholar Hillel Fradkin, who talks about teaching 9/11 in schools. And Education News of the Weird is protected by both the First Amendment and Larry Flynt. All packed into less than 20 minutes? Game, set, match.?

This week, Mike and Rick squawk about the SAT, why men need affirmative action, and parents who live through their progeny. We've got an interview with Citizen Virginia, who offers our non-profit some non-prophet advice about national standards, and News of the Weird threatens to muddle the very character of our schools. Eduwonk?says?listening to this 20-minute podcast is ''like watching a ferret being tortured.'' We say Andrew Rotherham should?stop torturing ferrets.
