Saying Goodbye to Education Week (Part 1)

Dear Readers,

We will be moving this blog to a new home on July 10.  We are most likely going to move to DailyKos but, as we make this transition, I want your thoughts about:

  1. Where we should move;
  2. Our writing style.

My goals in developing the Democracy and Education blog have been to:

  • Make the connections between day-to-day issues in schools and larger systems thinking about economics and policy and find out what readers think about these connections;
  • Let readers know what they can do to become systems change agents and solicit readers’ ideas;
  • Develop a conversation and get feedback on our ideas.  We hope to build a larger body of knowledge through this blog’s reader comments.

Our ultimate goals are to expand activists’, students’, educators’ and our own thinking about what is possible, establish collaboration among a wide range of partners, and participate in building the public and political will necessary to imagine and push for a more participatory, equitable education and economic system. 

Are you familiar with a site that would lend itself to the goals I have for Democracy and Education?

I am a fan of Education Week and have enjoyed writing here.  But as we consider what blog community might be a better fit for our goals, we have realized we are not getting as much interaction and comments as we’d like.  Readers’ tell us that we need to make our blogs shorter, more relevant, more full of love and boldness and share what they can do in their daily life to become change agents.

Do you agree? 

As we transition to a new space, we have taken an interest in the DailyKos because bloggers there get many more comments. Do you think the DailyKos will fit our goals?  Do you have other suggestions?

We hold the feedback and suggestions of our readers dear. We ask that you share whatever criticism you may have. We are building a community and we invite you to come with us. 

I would greatly appreciate your feedback on our new ideas for style and where to land our blog.  Comment below--or feel free to email me at [email protected]

Many thanks!
