They work harder

Scholar has added a new feature, the technical term for which is "blogroll," over on the left side of this blog. It's a list of links to our favorite blogs about education, ed reform, school choice, and the like.

One of them is joannejacobs.com. Joanne passed on a great story about Vietnamese students that does not include English Language Learner (ELL) or Title I funding:

An English teacher in San Jose once told me that all her best students were Vietnamese. This was a few years after the refugee influx. I said, "How can that be? They all speak English as a second language. How can they be the best in English?"

"They work harder," the teacher said.
Please check the blogroll regularly for some great education blogs.
