USA education season on Mike Baker's blog
03 Sep 2010
I'm in the USA for the start of the new academic year, so will be blogging on some North American education stories for the next 10 days or so -- that's if I survive Hurricane Earl which is blowing up around me in Maryland at present. The Weather Channel is getting very excited about it...but it looks as though it will be doings it's worst out in the ocean not on the eastern seaboard.
The US school system has just gone back and I'll be picking up on some of the changes around charter schools, the testing debate, Obama's reforms and the effects of recession on state spending.
Universities will be restarting soon and, later on, I'll be at the University of Michigan and commenting on the start of the new academic year there.
Normal coverage of the UK education scene will resume from September 14th
