For those of you interested in trends in education, you’ll probably like this quiz. Catching up on my reading today, I stumbled upon this column in The Washington Post by Valerie Strauss called The Answer Sheet. In a entertaining quiz, she manages to help us review this last year in education. Do you know, for instance, how much training Teach for America recruits get before going out on their own to teach in high-poverty schools? (answer: 5 weeks – much, much less than I would have expected). I won’t spoil the rest of the questions for you, but I will encorage you to check the quiz out for yourselves! Click here to read her full post and to take the quiz.
