Hello all and welcome back after HH’s loooong Thanksgiving holiday. Although jetset, shoals, pizzawhale and myself are scattered about, we were all together this weekend and blew our Wire load on watching #49 and, because it was too hard to resist, 50. (Thanks, HBO, for sending me those DVDs — I never wrote the review but hey, this blog’s not so bad.) We’ll be putting up some thoughts on 49 this week and dealing with 50 next week, and no, we will not be spoiling anything for anyone. We don’t play like that.
I’ll be leading the 49 charge this afternoon, but for now, content yourself with some recommended reading. If anyone has thoughts on this article or knows more about the KIPP schools, I’d love to hear it.
