Magazines: Atlantic Helps You Get Over Your Strike Hangover

image from atlanticlive.theatlantic.comThe Atlantic is here to help you get over your Chicago strike hangover, with a bunch of school-related stories including at least a couple that will generate some buzz over the next few days:

Why Kids Should Grade Teachers (Amanda Ripley): A growing number of school systems are administering the surveys—and might be able to overcome teacher resistance in order to link results to salaries and promotions.

The Writing Revolution (Peg Tyre):  Faced with closure, the school's principal went all-in on a very specific curriculum reform, placing an overwhelming focus on teaching the basics of analytic writing, every day, in virtually every class. 

New advocates, new ideas (Nicole Allan): In recent years, a new generation of activists has stepped up to lobby legislators and drive the conversation. A rundown of worthy upstarts.

The Homeschool Diaries (Paul Elie): In New York City, where private schools cost tens of thousands of dollars a year and many public schools are just meh, teaching your own kids can make the most practical sense.
