Stuff on a Friday....

Could you work KIPP hours?

The President of the Chicago Teachers' Union says they have a long way to go on contract negotiations. When it comes to Chi-town, I'll always read the comments on the District 299 blog.

I was looking at my stats earlier and they really spiked yesterday, and I realized why: TNT was running the Ron Clark Story again. So, in honor of that terrible movie, here is the link to my review of aforementioned terrible movie.

I have to admit that I tire of the white guy/gal comes into a diverse school and saves everyone. Ugh!

No crap. Think-tanks and upper management muckety-mucks complain about the lack of minority teachers (especially male minority teachers) and how this deficit is hurting our inner-city youth-- and they're absolutely right. A movie like this does nothing to show positive minority role models to minority youth, and simply entrenches the status quo.
