On Poverty, Ed Reform, and the Most Important Foundation You’ve Probably Never Heard Of
Note: Jonathan Plucker, the Raymond Neag Professor of Education at the University of Connecticut, is guest posting this week. He can be found on Twitter at @JonathanPlucker.
I’d like to thank Rick Hess for allowing me to guest blog this week. It has been a lot of fun to share some provocative ideas and see the reactions. Walking in Rick’s shoes, even for just a week, is a responsibility I take seriously, and I appreciate his willingness to let me do this every so often. I also want to thank Jenn Hatfield for her help in getting everything together.
Of all the controversial topics I’ve blogged about over the past few years, the only one that has gotten me in real trouble was this post on poverty.
