Jewish education/educators in the news

Two interesting NYTimes articles on education have come my way recently, both of which are success stories that have drawn the attention of the general media. The first is a report on an effort in Jewish schools to stamp out gossip. You can see the story at
http://www.nytimes.com/2008/03/27/nyregion/27gossip.html?

The second story relates the success of Shimon Waronker as principal of a difficult junior high school in the Bronx - see http://www.nytimes.com/2008/02/08/nyregion/08principal.html?
This story has been picked up in other places, as well - see, for example
