Daley's son signs up for Iraq...Governor Rod loses his "super-sized" security detail...

...But not that much education news.

There's a great piece about Gage Park High School's efforts to implement AVID: Trying to unleash potential in underperforming students (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel) .

There's piece about Chicago's implementation of the NCLB transfer requirement, School transfer slots wasted (Chicago Tribune), which chronicles the limited use of the provision by parents but almost entirely lets CPS off the hook for its letter-of-the-law implementation of the requirement. Not that I don't love Xavier as much as anyone else.

The best of the rest:
