Teach for America

Today's diversion: two papers, two articles, one subject. Both the WSJ and the NY Times published a piece about Teach For America recently. The WSJ piece is (IMHO) a superior piece, but I think it's interesting how both articles play up the number of Ivy League candidates in the program, but WSJ takes a much more positive view of the TFA results than does the NY Times.

In other news, some friends of mine are leaving to be missionaries in Uganda today. That makes headlines like this all the more alarming: 80 people were killed in Kampala by Somalian terrorists intent on breaking up the World Cup watch party with bombings. Please pray for peace and safety for both the Ugandan people and my friends John & Amanda.
