Some new education-related links:
- David Brooks on the willingness of the Obama-Duncan team to push radical school reform
- Elena Silva on re-organising teachers’ work to make schools more effective (use of teams, integrating on-the-job training, removing needless admin tasks).
- Andrew Barr on reforming the teaching profession (“Seniority – out. Merit – in.”)
And a link that is neither ed-related or new, but which I realised I’ve never blogged about.
- Ian Harper’s 30-minute lecture on Australian economic history is a corker. One for econ-poddies everywhere.
