The transcript of Thursday’s interview with Jay Mathews is here. The podcast will be posted here later.
The reactions to the interview were overwhelmingly positive, because Jay is as good an interview as he is a writer, and because Americans are starved to hear good news about public education. “Work Hard. Be Nice: How Two Inspired Teachers Created The Most Promising Schools In America” will soar on bestseller lists if the people who order up book reviews for various outlets and the people who write them have any sense at all.
