...about writing this blog is that I get introduced to new, excellent blogs all the time. If you haven't read Life at the Morton School, you should. I particularly liked the post on TFA and the Fellows program.
While I have real problems with TFA and Fellows, I suspect they may not survive the current economic crisis anyway. At a minimum, I suspect a hiring freeze is at hand; at worst, we'll see massive layoffs. In either case, both those programs may become irrelevant.
