Round up of links

  • If somehow the talk of "21st century segregation" in today's Pioneer Institute column got you wondering, I'd advise you to look at the wide array of research demonstrating that charter schools are putting us right back into dealing with the 20th (and previous) century segregation. There's plenty of research out there on this.
  • Popping a bit outside the usual K-12 focus here, this article on the Ivy League and real education is an interesting read. 
  • If you're trying to figure out what you can do to help the kids fleeing violence to our south, First Focus has some suggestions. Also, see more at Border Kids Relief. 
  • When you see this report about principals' expectations, remember that correlation doesn't necessarily equal causation.
