Newsweek interviews Bill Gates and Randi Weingarten

Newsweek interviewed Bill Gates, former head of Microsoft and current philanthropist,  and Randi Weingarten,  president of the American Federation of Teachers, for their recent issue.

The interview is quite lengthy but still well worth reading. My takeaway was that both Gates and Weingarten, who often are portrayed as being opponents, actually have a number of points of agreement, chief among which is the need for a fair but useful system of teacher evaluation.
