Rick Hess in the House
Watch out edusphere, here comes Hess. Our good friend (and fellow executive editor at Ed Next) Rick Hess has launched a new blog, Rick Hess Straight Up on the coveted real estate of edweek.org. In his first post (992 words; Rick, it’s a blog, not a book!), Hess manages to skewer the NEA, the school choice movement, President Obama, Arne Duncan, Congress, merit pay advocates, technology enthusiasts, the de-tracking camp, and people who “love children.” Not a bad start. Check it out!
