Stanley Fish likes a Core Curriculum

Welcome back! With school starting soon, I am spending more time on the internet again and find much interesting to read. Here are just a few:

This morning's NY Times has Stanley Fish calling for a core curriculum so that students and faculty can have a common conversation.

Yesterday, I was reading the interesting discussion about whether teachers need an education degree.

And finally, Maureen Dowd writes about anonymity of bloggers. With the beginning of new year, I wonder if I should continue my own anonymity. . .

Student Sues Her Alma Mater

This is too good of a story to pass up.  A student who hasn't found a job three months after graduation is suing.

It seems like a nice case of litigation out of control, but at least no real lawyer took the case.

I haven't been posting much this summer, but this made me laugh!
