Weekend Reading: Nasty, Brutish, And Short

image from graphics8.nytimes.com
Not obsessed with the Chicago strike?  There were at least a couple of interesting articles that came out over the weekend -- though none of them particularly uplifiting:

A NYT article on the our kinds of teachers (in popular media): lazy, washed up, bully, saint, ow.ly/dKCub

A pretty miserable account of the life of a middle school math teacher in LA...Teaching Ate Me Alive - Salon - ow.ly/dKo62 

A Matt Yglesias / Slate post on how government programs to alleviate poverty don't get included in the official poverty numbers  ow.ly/dJOyS

Also:  NBC News announced late Friday that Mitt Romney is scheduled to appear at @educationnation later this month.
