There's new stuff up at, which, oddly enough, is registered to Milwaukee Public Schools.
An Oregonian report says Oregon Public Broadcasting cut about 24 jobs—15 percent of its staff—yesterday, in response to the weak economy. Several higher-ups were included. (More coverage in the Portland Tribune.)
White House spokesman Ari Fleischer couldn't keep his NPR sweatshirt (and why was the network giving him one, anyway?). So who has it now? (Second item.)
CPB was a lead funder of the report on schools and the Internet, "Are We There Yet?," released yesterday by the National School Boards Foundation. Primo soundbite on NPR jibed the schools for depending heavily on kids for computer setup and troubleshooting. Schools use the Web mostly for teachers' research and lesson planning, very little for students' work, report says.
