Many readers do not have the time to identify and read announcements documenting the relationship between federal education policymaking and the business of school improvement.

edbizbuzz can help.

Starting today, I’ll be offering my top five announcements from each monthly issue.

My criteria for selection will be information and events that help edbizbuzz readers understand how what happens in Washington shapes our emerging market for school improvement products, services and programs.
