A Cautionary Tale & A Follow-Up

2x in a day...I know...

Hey Substack readers. The old Google product just aggregated all the content in a day - I usually just do one post a day if that but not always - and sent it to you at once.

Here you get each post. I can experiment with other options so if you feel strongly about this, let me know. And here’s a second post from today with some breaking news and a follow-up.


72 hours ago everyone was pretty convinced they knew the deal in Loudoun County Schools. Maybe not?  It's worth watching what's happening there. Today the superintendent is apologizing for apparently seriously mishandling a sexual assault and a school board member is resigning. Loudoun County is the kind of place the Democrats need a strong showing in Virginia to hold the governor's mansion.

The other day I noted that Eric Adams isn't on board with the current push to reform gifted programs in New York and, "Hopefully the incoming mayor can craft a more robust plan to address multiple issues at once."

Scant details, but apparently that's his plan. Here are three unremarkable ways to do that. "Gifted" education doesn't have to be as scarce a good as we make it.
