Too good for just the Twitter column
- Wow- whirlwind tour of Chicago orchestrated by Mike & Susan Klonsky. Great people. Thanks, guys!
- First stop Depaul, overflow crowd of students, teachers, faculty. Great response. 2 drove from Columbus Ohio, 1 from Detroit.
- Next stop U of Ill, where I met Bill Ayers, posed for photo. I cd be elected President by palling around with him. Large crowd.
- Dinner w/ exec comm of Chicago Teachers Union. What a day. Exhausted.
- Sat am meeting with friends of Catalyst, terrific research journal covering Chicago Public Schools. Wish we had it in NYC.
- Sat went to convention center for NSBA. Room packed, over 1,000, they ran out if chairs and turned away overflow late arrivals.
- NSBA response amazing. Standing ovation. Once again, not enough books, sold out.
- Note to Arne: Race to the Top is NCLB on steroids.
