As you may recall, Colbert had TFA founder Wendy Kopp on last year,
and I think he (of maybe it was Jon Stewart) had Charles Best from
DonorsChoose on the show. I think Spellings may have been on both
shows, but I could be wrong about that. It's all blurring together --
someone should do a best of Colbert/Stewart education bits post.
What education-related person or program will be on one of these
shows next? My guess is that it'll be Geoffrey Canada (or Paul Tough),
or maybe Peg Tyre.
Chicago fact: Apparently, the booker for the show is Jonathan Alter's wife. Alter, a Newsweek political columnist, comes from Chicago. Now, back to KIPP.
