I know that PURE's Julie Woestehoff, like many others in Chicago, doesn't always agree with me about what most needs doing when it comes to school reform. And I knew she's indicate as much if and when she told her members about this blog (as I'd asked her to consider doing). She told me as much.
But I didn't know that my views seem as reactionary at this: "Several of PUREs news items and press releases have been appearing on "District 299", a blog by Alexander Russo Russo which covers daily news on the Chicago Public Schools," wrote Julie to her members. "Russos commentary leans towards the Stossel end of the spectrum rather than the Kozol but he posts a wide variety of timely articles and opinion which are not collected elsewhere." (emphasis mine). Yikes.
