Following press conference announcing school art contest, @LtGovNunez & @SenMannyDiazJr refused to answer questions about new “Don’t Say Gay” expansion bills filed in Tallahassee. Opponents argue the bills will hurt LGBTQ+ students and lead to further discrimination. @WPLGLocal10

🚨We're excited to share a revised version of our retitled WP: "Taking Teacher Evaluation Reforms to Scale"🚨
We dedicate considerable attention to exploring WHY we find null effects, on average, of state teacher eval reforms (plus robustness galore).

Did you know this week marks 2 of the biggest anniversaries in American history? Don't worry; it's not your fault. This story may be illegal in your state but 155 years ago this week... Or 75 years ago... Black South Carolinians invented the American education system A thread

Potato chips have a special place in my heart. Growing up, my family would share a bag of chips in the car as we drove all over to deliver my father's civil rights newspaper "The Voice.” On National Potato Chip Day, I remember the food that nourished my civil rights march. 🥔

Water has since been restored to the general population in Jackson, but for pregnant people and those with infants and small children, the water is still too dangerous to drink due to ongoing lead contamination. bit.ly/3JE1Of5
Mr. McCants was a pillar in the @dcpublicschools Stoddert community and played an outsized role in the lives of his students and their families. Please consider supporting his own family at this very difficult time. gofundme.com/f/unforeseen-e…
Please keep this family in your thoughts and prayers as they navigate this unimaginable tragedy. Having a baby can be painful, isolating and lonely. PPD is real. If you’re struggling, you’re not alone. Help is here: 1-833-9-HELP4MOMS gofundme.com/f/patrick-clan…

Great anecdote--Sen. Patty Murray recalls being seated on the edge of a committee dais & senior men making decisions in the middle. “I remember finally just standing up at the end of the table going, ‘Excuse me!’ Because you couldn’t get their attention,” Murray says twitter.com/MCJalonick/sta…

So not for nothing, but finding classified documents in your boss' personal archive is so common the @USNatArchives has procedures for what to do in its public FAQ. That, and more of what we're all talking about here after the latest Pence revelations: usnews.com/news/national-…
Anyone else's kids perform a "how floppy is the bacon before I try it" test while giving their personal short-order cook (me) a skeptical look? Or is that just mine?
I returned to work this week and I’m looking forward to reconnecting, especially with those of you with whom I was working on projects and brainstorming story ideas. Thanks for your patience! ❤️
They’ve been working collaboratively to ensure our son has the tools and care he needs to thrive. This is no small feat and my family is truly indebted to these amazing people.
... as well as the outstanding care of @dcpublicschools educators, social workers, psychologists, special needs teachers and a whole team of doctors and occupational therapists.
It’s equal parts testament to a core value at @usnews that family always comes first and my supportive managers and editors who allowed me to step away for so long...
The last six weeks have been at times confusing and devastating, but also hopeful due to the intense support he’s been able to receive at home, at school and in the hospital that has resulted in notable progress.
I took an extended medical leave to help my younger son tackle some sudden and very challenging developmental delays.
Some of you fantastic folks noticed that I’ve been off social and not writing stories since about Thanksgiving. Thanks for all of your kind check-ins. It’s been nice to hear from so many people in the ed policy and politics space who reached out with genuine concern.

Quick🧵: I want to say something about this chart (other than, as so many rightly point out, this is really a chart about paid sick/dependent care leave plus public health): it's a great example of the fact that school is child care, too! twitter.com/FenitN/status/…

Ten states provided me with data on enrollment at their virtual schools. The trend? Even as campuses reopened & mask mandates fell, student enrollment at stand-alone remote academies kept climbing. Whether that's a boon or a crisis depends on who you ask the74million.org/article/virtua…

BREAKING: 48K University of Calfornia TAs, postdocs & other student workers just walked off the job. It's the largest strike in the US since 2019. Many UC workers earn < $24k/yr. A PhD student I spoke to said they donate blood plasma to make ends meet. washingtonpost.com/business/2022/…
