Weekend Reading: While You Were Off Having A Life
I know it's sort of a pain but you should really also be following me on Twitter (@alexanderrusso) and Facebook. Just in case you haven't gotten to that yet, here are some of the best things from over the weekend:
How College Pricing Is Like Holiday Retail Sales - ProPublica http://ht.ly/svdbg “carefully engineered illusion" ... “retail theater.”
The Latest Language-Learning Trend for NYC Kids: Coding -- New York Magazine http://ht.ly/suxgA
No books, no clue at "city’s worst school" | New York Post http://ht.ly/svJYP
Also: Thanks to everyone who told me that my "From Jay Mathews" tweets -- my long-running effort to make sure his stuff makes it into social media -- had been flipped with Valerie Strauss's posts. I'm working on getting the feeds sorted out.
