This week in blogging, here

What’s been going on?

  1. On Edwize there have been two serious discussions about the modifications to the Bloomberg Department of Ed reorganization, first about the agreement and then about teachers transfers.
  2. I have been involved in a discussion with a (soon to be) local teacher union leader in a state where only some of the teachers belong to the union. See Educator on the Edge for more.
  3. The NY Post has an article about a charter school in the Bronx where four teachers were fired over the course of the year, and the other four have just quit. That’s the whole teaching staff. (NYC Educator found this article).
  4. I put stuff into two carnivals: Education (because Dr. Homeslice, as pro-union as they come, was the host) and Mathematics (because, well, you know)
  5. I got linked by Manhattan User’s Guide (Charlie Doug Suissman’s) and had (for me) a nice spike in visits (thank you Charlie. Edit – Doug – Charlie wondered why I used his brother’s name. Probably I picked up the “UG” from MUG). If you are here from MUG, welcome, though it really is a strange little place (and what’s not snappy about 2718?)
  6. Two of my favorite teacher/bloggers have news:

Code TalkersAs always, links come and go.

  • xkcd has some great geek cartoons (sample here –>)
  • jennifer spates is preachy, but about issues I agree with.
  • Goodbye Quadratic Queen, we hardly knew you.
