Workers find historic remnants of U-Va. Rotunda as they restore Jeffersonian icon

Education News from Washington Post - Fri, 07/25/2014 - 8:13pm

It didn’t look like much, just a crumpled scrap of metal that had been tossed aside, forgotten in a pile of old rubble. But a conservator at the University of Virginia was pretty sure they had found something historically significant: a shingle from Thomas Jefferson’s iconic Rotunda.

Strauss: Chris Christie to mayor: ‘I’m the decider and you have nothing to do with it’

Education News from Washington Post - Fri, 07/25/2014 - 4:52pm

(Correction: In an earlier version the first name of Newark Superintendent Cami Anderson was missing. It is now restored.)

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) is consistent — at least when it comes to espousing total  indifference to what Newark residents want for their state-operated public school system. Christie just bragged (see video below) that he told new Newark Mayor Ras Baraka that Baraka’s views on education reform don’t matter a whit — and the governor declared himself “the decider.”

How many times have you heard that “practice makes perfect?” Well, a new meta-analysis of dozens of previous studies shows that it is not always true. In this post, Alfie Kohn explains and talks about the consequences of this when it comes to education. Kohn  is the author of 13 books about education and human behavior, including “The Schools Our Children Deserve,” “The Homework Myth,” and “The Myth of the Spoiled Child: Challenging the Conventional Wisdom About Children and Parenting.” He lives (actually) in the Boston area and (virtually) at www.alfiekohn.org.

Motherlode Blog: Letting a Child Make the Small Sacrifice

Education News from NY Times - Fri, 07/25/2014 - 1:43pm
It’s always my instinct to sacrifice for my kids. To step back; to say, you take it, you go, it’s ok, I don’t mind. My daughter’s gift of a horseback ride reminded me that being the giver isn’t always the right thing to do.
