Reading List

Magazine deadlines everywhere! So apologies for not blogging up a storm this week. If you're looking for some good education reading, check out John Schmitt's contribution  to the neverending "is college worth it?" debate. Schmitt says, quite rightly: "Why is it that when confronted with compelling evidence that college pays a big financial dividend, so many young people still don’t get a college degree? Heather Boushey and I argue that the short answer  is that for a surprising share of college graduates, the large price tag may actually not pay off."

Another interesting read: Bill Gates tells the Wall Street Journal that his current education philanthropy priorities include research and leveraging private money to change government funding priorities. 

Music break!
