Star Ledger--Pallone is right: Government must lead the fight against teen vaping | Editorial

There are kids smoking e-cigarettes in your local middle school and high school today, perhaps dozens of them, and many have even mastered the trick of doing it during class without being detected.

It involves a $50 device not much larger than a USB thumb drive known as a JUUL, which they can pull out for a brain-twerking nicotine rush when the teacherís head is turned, and detection is hard because the odorless vapor dissipates almost as quickly as it takes to exhale.

Education Week--One Superintendent's Approach to Pragmatic, Sustainable Tech Leadership

Superintendent takes patient, practical approach to ed tech

In his dark suits and muted ties, with a manner more like your local pastor than a Silicon Valley CEO, Doug Brubaker doesn't exactly scream "innovation."

But in an age of deep-pocketed disruptors whose ideas about reshaping public education have mostly foundered, Brubaker's patient, people-first approach to technological change may be exactly what schools need.
