"F No Es Fabuloso?"

Joanne Jacobs, whom I interviewed for my first article on Weblogs way, way back in March of 2002, (the Blogosphere’s Pleistocene era, I believe)has a new book this month titled, Our School: The Inspiring Story of Two Teachers, One Big Idea and the School That Beat the Odds,, which profiles a San Jose charter high school that prepares underachieving Mexican-American students to succeed in college. She also has an article in Tech Central Station titled, “Beating the Scholastic Odds” that’s well worth reading.

Update: Speaking of education, Pajamas says that a homeschooled California teenager has won the prestigious Siemens Westinghouse Competition in Math, Science and Technology and has a round-up of links to bloggers–including Joanne.
