"Education Reform and KIPP"

Fine piece by one William H. Gates III.

I find it stunning that the educational schools are not training teachers to use the KIPP way of teaching classes.

What the heck is going on with schools of education and what is the field going to do to get some of them to get involved in this kind of work?

From The Gates Notes, billg's new site with lots of interesting stuff. For example, "Why We Need Innovation, Not Just Insulation" is also excellent. (Link via Michael Greenspan.)
