This blog will take a three-week, late summer break after today. Look for a new post on Monday, September 8. Enjoy the rest of your summer!
Well, I’m going to cheat briefly on my self-imposed vacation. If you haven’t seen David Kirp’s excellent piece, Teaching is Not a Business, on the NY Times Op Ed page, please read it.
Kirp is the author of last year’s book, Improbable Scholars, about the transformation of the public schools in Union City, New Jersey and a professor at the University of California at Berkley.
