In honor of Eli Broad calling me "Blonsky," (I know, I just can't let it go) Sec. of State Hilary Clinton has decided to rebrand the War on Terror, and Arne Duncan isn't going to call it No Child Left Behind any more.

Criteria for success
Arne Duncan tells the U.S. Conference of Mayors that if there aren't many more mayoral takeovers. He will have "failed as secretary."

Scrambling for seats
This must be the team of managers that Ron Huberman brought over from the CTA to run the schools:

More than two dozen kids have won last-minute seats in Chicago’s coveted magnet schools or programs after officials discovered their applications were mistakenly deleted from the computer system, Chicago Public Schools officials said Monday.“It was just a computer glitch,’’ CPS spokeswoman Monique Bond said. “Fortunately we were able to rectify it.’’Earlier this month, the applications of 56 students were accidentally deleted from the computer system during a “scrub’’ of inactive student identification numbers, CPS attorney Patrick Rocks said.

  1. It seems like Duncan's on a road trip campaigning for more power to the mayors and using the stim dollars as a lever.
