The Chalkboard Psychedelic Flashback!

This is what we were blog- ging about a year ago this week:

-- The big KIPP blog-off of '06! It was a year ago that we accused AFT Michele of having a lackluster work ethic (it turns out she does not) and simultaneously wondered if Eduwonk was a gay cowboy. (His Eduwife insists he is not, though she worries about a possible fish fetish. Not that there is anything wrong with that!)

-- The UFT gives teachers a step-by-step lesson on how to rid their personnel files of any unsightly evaluations.

-- James Merriman, executive director of SUNY's Charter Schools Institute, nearly implies that Albany Superintendent Eva Joseph is smoking crack or something.

-- Civic Builders gets a boatload of cash from the Michael and Susan Dell Foundation to help build nine new NYC charter schools.

-- Buffalo math that doesn't add up, even a year later...
