I’m not at the AFT Convention. Why not? A lot of reasons. But you needn’t miss out. Ed Week‘s Stephen Sawchuk has got the news covered, and Norm Scott of Education Notes Online ably fills the smart-ass commentary gap. He’s already got a couple of gems:
* “This is going to be pretty funny considering how just about everyone you talk to in Unity trashes Randi as they gush, ‘Mulgrew is so different. He is a real teacher.’ Sure. A year ago they would be telling you how smart Randi was. If Jack the Ripper ran the union they would talk about how clean and shiny he keeps his knives.”
* “By the way, there has not been a Mulgrew sighting here yet. He must be up in Randi’s room ironing her clothes.”
If there are others out there combining full coverage with sharp writing, let me know and we’ll update with more links here.
