Arc of a Diversity

Recent studies show (again) that diversity in schools is not a detriment to the test scores that white kids earn. “White student achievement in schools with the highest Black student density did not differ from White student achievement in schools with the lowest density.”

+ “If you went to anybody who’s in education, you say PE versus instruction, they say instruction every time. But what we’re trying to show is that more movement equals better grades, better behavior, better bodies.” WaPo on the Charleston schools where children are seen, and heard, and always active.

+ Ahmed Mohamed (the clock making kid) and his family visited the White House. Hours later, they announced that they are moving to Qatar. (Must have been a pretty bad White House visit.)
