LA Times Education Blog Bites The Dust...For Now

| 8 Comments

For a while now, the LA Times' School Me blog has been a much-admired newspaper education blog, what with its fun graphics, combo of commentary and superlocal news, and all the rest. Now comes news that the site is going on haitus. It's hard to tell whether this is temporary or permanent, but my honest guess is the latter. It's nothing more than a guess, though, and I hope I'm wrong. Either way, thanks to Bob and Janine for giving the edusphere a look at what a well-run blog could look like.

I, for one, am sorry to see it go. It was one of my regular reads.

Wow! Losing 'School Me' sets the whole dialogue about public ed in LA back a long way. And just when things were getting good (as in happening, what with Locke HS rebellion and Green Dot incursions). Make no mistake, it's a war out here in SoCal, but then our bizarre ideas (like Arnold) always force us to the cutting edge. I'm all for flattening that hierarchy that towers over the schools, getting rid of the ridiculous NCLB testing extravaganza and putting our resources where they will count: small, personalized HIGH schools (not to mention the other levels) for every kid, not just the ones whose parents are able to speak up. Our way of life, I believe, actually depends on this much deeper, more sweeping level of change! www.changetheschools.com
