Welcome to Ohio, Wendy Kopp
- Utah's superintendent of public instruction sent Arne Duncan a letter this week reminding the Secretary that as much as the state wants a waiver, it can't be forced to stick with the Common Core. Of course, he's right, and Mr. Duncan is to be commended for correctly (and astutely) agreeing in a letter of his own.
- From Wendy Kopp to Diane Ravitch, classroom teachers to mayoral candidates, the criticism of the release of New York City teacher ratings is piling up. Here’s hoping that rigorous teacher evaluations survive the storm.
- On Tuesday, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced a new website that will track the progress of districts statewide as they hash out new teacher evaluation plans. Kudos to Cuomo for keeping the public’s eye on a process so susceptible to stagnation.
- Teach For America will (finally) debut in Ohio this fall, and Fordham wants to be the first to welcome the new corps members to the Buckeye State; Gadfly is optimistic that it’s the start of a relationship that will pay big dividends for Ohio’s school children.
