Attract and retain teachers? Lets start with a living wage. 'Respect' is a great idea but if we can't afford our rent, we look for other work.

The Inner Circle show is a black-tie dinner that supposedly raises money for charity. Can WNYC look into and publish what percentage of the revenue from the event actually goes to charity, versus what percentage is spent on putting on the show and related entertainment?

Wasn't the NYT's Jill Abramson at the White House state dinner just a few weeks ago? Is that different than the NYC event than the comedy dinner the NYT prohibits its reporters from joining?

Brian, Brian, Brian - you have a public health background. Did you not study epidemiology? Do you not remember selection bias? There are plenty of successful programs in the regular public schools how have "better test scores" that could be used as models. Quite frankly the old fashioned solidly great teachers with experience (who mentor the young enthusiasts)have done a great job in my son's school. That old fashioned style would be something to return to.

Ed - That's not just off topic, that's spectacularly off topic. It has nothing to do with any topic on today's show. Have you considered just starting your own blog?

Not to be off-topic, but is Mr. Tyson in Cosmos running a show about science or giving a (lame) argument for the current scientific atheism we see so much of today?
