The Ed Week diaspora grows

The ranks of American education's "newspaper of record" are growing ever thinner. Last month came news that Lynn Olson is heading to the Gates Foundation; now we hear that Bess Keller, the paper's "teacher quality" beat reporter, is heading to the estimable National Council on Teacher Quality. It's a great fit and exciting news for Keller and NCTQ--and another ominous development for Education Week.
