Albert Shanker, The Little Rock Nine, and More

Jennifer Jacobson, Assistant Editor of the American Educator, writes:

I came across the blog of the Dewey
Society's Commission on Social Issues
and thought the fall 2007 issue of
American Educator, a quarterly
publication of the American
Federation of Teachers, might be of interest.

It includes a book excerpt from Richard Kahlenberg's new biography of former AFT president, Albert Shanker, as well as articles on the Little Rock Nine, and the importance of teaching Plutarch in high school humanities classes.
