The Week That Was.


We received dozens of submissions for our student lunch contest and tons of feedback in terms of who should win gift certificates from Whole Foods Market. Thanks to everyone who participated and weighed in (it's not too late!) And be sure to stay tuned: Five winners will be announced on Monday.

Morning Roundups continued to pick up steam.

Nikhil wrote about economists giving KIPP a passing grade, a creationist ousted from Texas' Board of Education, and President Obama's Race to the Top contest.

We also started a conversation about cohabitation and whether living together before marriage leads to long-term togetherness.

Julia Novy-Hildesley wrote about the revolutionary idea of a science curriculum that only costs $1 per school per month and Lillian Mongeau wrote a dispatch from Oakland, chronicling Thursday's protest against California's education budget cuts.

And in case you missed it, Mike Copperman's essay on teaching writing to his students is a powerful read. As is Brendan Lowe's second column, a weekly dispatch about his students and his classroom in the South Bronx.
