ICYMI: So This Is 2022 Edition (1/2)

 Well, here we are. It's almost as if the physical universe is not particularly impressed by our arbitrarily created markings of the passage of time. I remain optimistic, however. Here's the reading list for the week. 

The Coming Troubles of Public Ed In Virginia

Nancy Bailey joins those looking at the incoming administration in Virginia and concludes that it means bad news for those who love public education and student data privacy.

Education Exodus

A news report covering an Oregon study that looks at teacher stress over the past year.

New laws and old

Gregory Sampson takes a look at how the old law of unintended consequences is about to follow a new law covering teacher personal days in North Carolina

Is McKinsey China's weapon against America?

Gordon Change contributes a Newsweek op ed about our old friends at McKinsey and one other consern about their compass-free approach to business.

How Maine is trying to take food insecurity off kids' plates

PBS takes a look at one state's attempt to deal with child hunger

The quiet effort to change Massachusetts' education policy

By now you're familiar with the attempts to gag the teaching of anything related to race--the efforts that involve screaming and noisily ramming laws through. But you may have missed some quieter, but equally scary attempts, like what's going on in Massachusetts.

Lost in the critical race theory debate: the enduring value of the free press

From the Philadelphia Inquirer (beware the limited number of free articles), a new take on CRT panic, and how it threatens the free flow of information that journalism is all about.

A truly patriotic education requires critical analysis of US history

At The Hill, Wallace Stern talks about how to teach true history and face the controversies.

End of the year compilation posts are kind of a pain, but Steve Snyder always does two, God bless him-- the posts that were most popular at his blog, and those that he thinks were most overlooked.

God keeps me and us around

Jose Luis Vilson has had quite the year, and his summation is well worth the read.

And, this week at Forbes, I pointed out that courts in North Carolina have now ruled that charter schools are not public schools--twice. Then we went to Oklahoma and Florida to look at how those states are putting more threat in their teacher gag laws. And finally, asking if we'll ever get school covid policy out of the kluge stage.
