Book Club – The Smartest kids in the world

Okay, I’m finishing up the most boring marketing book in the world, so I need something interesting to read.  I keep hearing that this has some interesting stuff in it so I’m choosing this as the next CPSO Book Club Selection.   This will be my first official Kindle read.   I just realized the downside of the Kindle is the inability to perceive the size of the book by seeing how thick/heavy it is.  320 pages it says.  So once I/any of you dive in we can decide how long we might need to read it, then I’ll plan an outing.

The last time we met was very fun.  And you can feel free to come if you didn’t read the book as we spent more time talking about (really, do I have to spell it out?….) CPS!  And having some wine.

CPSObsessed Book Club Begins!

The first official book for the CPSO book club will be:

The Death and Life of the Great American School System: How Testing and Choice Are Undermining Education

By Diane Ravitch

I ordered a used copy from Amazon for $10 including shipping.

How about we aim for end of June to begin reading?

If you’re interested, order the book and we can figure out a plan near the end of June.  We can discuss it online as we read through it and maybe meet up at the end?
