John nominated four people for the title of “Most Influential Educator in America” as spring turned to summer — Joel Klein, Arne Duncan, Big Bird and Wendy Kopp. In this blog entry, he fleshes out each candidate and names some new contenders, while inviting readers to weigh in.
John Merrow writes personally about his dear friend Fred Rogers, who passed away eight years ago this weekend. Merrow believes that we need Rogers more than ever now, given the current state of public education and public journalism.
