Here are my top 5:
1) Who will be Obama’s education secretary? OK, now we know it is Arne Duncan. Can we stop now?
2) Who is Eduwonkette? It’s Jennifer Jennings. Can we now concentrate on whether what she writes makes sense or not?
3) Where will Obama send his kids to school? It’s Sidwell Friends. Next the People Magazine-type education bloggers will want to know whether he wears boxers or briefs. Oh wait. We’ve been through that before.
4) Should we push choice or instructional reform? They’re both good together. Will the next invented, self-destructive fight be about whether we should have Popeye’s chicken or cajun mash potatoes?
5) End of year lists.
UPDATE: OK, I know that I said I was sick of the ed sec talk, but now that we know who it is I guess there is actually something new to say. And Mike Petrilli has the best analysis I’ve seen, here. I especially like that it is a 5 point list.
