Well, this is no way to start a weekend.

Al Shanker gets mentioned in the second paragraph of the Charter Schools entry on Wikipedia.

Guess who's not mentioned at all? Wikipedia clearly has no sense of who is truly influential.

One more for Diane

Maybe I could get Diane Ravitch to rough up Gerald Bracey too.

At least no one reads The Huffington Post.

They call him Flipper

I've calmed a bit after my initial frustration of having this blog mocked before its time by my own lackeys...err...underlings...err...well, yeah, lackeys.

It stings a bit less when I remember what weak-kneed traitors they are.

Can we take this outside?

It's great to see Diane Ravitch putting the smack down on Deb Meier. I mean, what place does democracy have in education anyway?


Just as I was getting ready to finally launch this thing, some knuckleheads try to steal my thunder. And the worst part is, they endorse Entourage, what a piece of garbage. The Wire, now there's a show, but they could have made it only one season long if Baltimore had just opened enough Charters.

Honestly, you spend a decade building a piddling foundation into an education reform juggernaut/cult of personality and this is how you're repaid. Let this be a lesson to all you aspiring education demigods out there. Yeah, I'm looking at you Rotherham.

So we'll see if I can spare this effort at all, or if the cause, much like NCLB, is already lost.
