- Marc Dean Millot's third piece is up, this one at Tuttle SVC. Rotherham must be the early frontrunner for Scrooge of the Year, an award he won just a few months ago.
- Ravitch's newest letter to Deb Meier is titled, "Conflicts of Interest and the Race to the Top". She touches on the Millot censorship, new philanthropy, and NSVF. Good stuff.
- The Imagine Schools and Inland Public Properties Properties, a Chicago-based real estate development company, closed a $61 million, 7 school deal. Imagine will still pay for maintenance, taxes, and insurance on the property, which makes the school a nice investment for Inland. No specifics were available, but it'd be interesting to see the rates Imagine will be paying - if it's anything like some of their other contracts, it'll be a hefty amount and a tight contract (this one is supposedly 20 years).
