Your Bright and Early comes even earlier than usual this morning because I am dashing off to explain my job to 3rd graders and I am more nervous than I have ever been in my life. We explain the details of the labor pact for the San Diego Unified bond — and guest blogger and labor leader Lorena Gonzalez captures the events in photos here.

The Union-Tribune also took on the labor agreement and summed up the budget cuts on the table as the San Diego Unified deficit has soared. The North County Times takes apart the financial damage in Oceanside schools. And once again, San Diego has a kidlet in the National Spelling Bee — remember Anurag and his eerie wisdom for his years?

The Los Angeles Times reports that Schwarzenegger is talking more cuts, including hits to higher education. Meanwhile, in an institute of higher education, researchers at the University of California, Davis find that attention problems in kindergarten drag down kids’ school performance all the way into high school.

And just to pile on the Sonia Sotomayor bandwagon, Education Week takes apart the education rulings of the potential Supreme Court pick.
