Illinois' second-largest school district is planning to use coaches to bring its struggling teachers up to PAR. Works for athletes. What do you think?

YESSS. I've been waiting for journalists to jump on this meme! (Although, I'm pretty sure what society thinks I do involves shaking hands with both Satan and Barack Obama. And what my mom thinks I do involves living in a cardboard box.)

I'm sad to report Elgin Community College librarian +Jen Schlau didn't make it into any of the photos from Friday's grand opening of the brand-new library. But it's not a bad place to work: The new building takes the community college library from the smallest in the Chicago area to state-of-the-art.

The Illinois State Board of Education has recommended an increase in education funding ahead of Gov. Pat Quinn's State of the State address this week. And everybody I talked to about it just LAUGHED because it's not like the state is paying school districts what it already has budgeted.
