Get the news and information you need to take on the day.
Wake up to your daily dose of school news: We report on the wary way that the oversight committee for Proposition S is treating the schoobrary idea — they couldn’t agree on whether the project fits under state law and the bond rules. We also blog on the San Diego Unified superintendent getting his report card today and more details on the plan to retrain teachers. Colleen O’Connor opines on e-books at SDNN. Oceanside schools are getting ready to adopt their budget, the North County Times reports. And KPBS and the Union-Tribune also track the schoobrary; its future is up for vote by the San Diego Unified board tonight.
State news is a little thin today: The Contra Costa Times reports on the impact of cutting adult education during the recession. And though I don’t usually link to college news, here’s an interesting one from the San Francisco Chronicle: Should donors get naming rights on community college classes they pony up the money to save?
On the national level, the New York Times writes about a court decision finding that public schools must pay for private school for students with disabilities, even if the students never got special education services in public school. Education Week blogs that U.S. history textbooks do a really bad job of explaining 9/11. The Associated Press reports on unions seeking a bigger role in charter schools. And The Washington Post reports on the Obama Administration beginning a campaign to “rebrand” No Child Left Behind by literally tearing down a little red schoolhouse in front of the Education Department.
