I know I’ve posted before about planning time; here is an article from the Tampa Tribune on a survey of local teachers’ desires for time–which are a lot like mine!

Here is a CNBC article reporting on yet another round of test results (this one from Pearson, which makes a lot of money off of this) that show Asian countries well ahead. An interesting quote from the report though points out that if the skills developed in school aren’t practiced in adulthood, they start declining at age 25.

Finally, bravissimi to a bunch of Haitian immigrant students in Miami who developed a game to help with learning English vocabulary. The game is called Word Avenger, and the article comes from the Miami Herald. See the YouTube ad here.
