Each morning, Celeste Headlee scours the country’s newspapers for interesting stories. Here's her list for today:

From The Denver Post:
Colorado lawmakers are debating a controversial tenure-reform billl, which would change the way teachers in that state get tenure. It is an emotional fight that had lawmakers debating the bill for much of Tuesday night. From the article:

SB 191 seeks to change the way teachers obtain and keep tenure and ties teacher evaluations to student academic growth. Teachers who receive two consecutive "ineffective" ratings could lose their tenured status and, potentially, their jobs.

From The Los Angeles Times:
The Mexican government asked its people to register their cellphones and thousands of people refused. They were afraid the information would end up in the wrong hands. Thousands registered their phones under the name Felipe Calderon. Turns out, the people were right. From the article:

They were proved right last month when the confidential data of millions of Mexicans from official state registries suddenly became available for a few thousand dollars at Mexico City's wild Tepito flea market.
