The Education Gadfly Show

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.

On this week's show, Mike and Rick debate whether Nancy Grasmick should run Baltimore's failing schools, why Robert Gordon wants to fire new teachers, and whether street protests teach students democracy in action. Plus, an interview with the author of this week's editorial, Nina Shokraii Rees.
