The EdReach contributors hash through the Facebook teacher firing fiasco, brought to you by the great state of Georgia! We also wade through Indiana’s controversial idea about hiring superintendents and educational leaders who have no formal education background. Are there appropriate times where hiring outside of the “Ed” pool can work?
We focus on Kristina Dell’s thoughtful and brilliant post in the Daily Beast on the negative effects from the trend to hold your student back from entering kindergarten. If everyone does it- where’s the advantage?
Finally we end on Twitter talk and hand out some of our favorite educators to follow, such as @karlfisch, @riptidef, @larryferlazzo, and @kernkelley . Of course, we explain all of our reasons for doing so.
