Best Of The Blogs -- Early Edition

I'm jumping the gun here a little bit, since we're hosting the Carnival Of Education tomorrow, but here are a couple of blog posts that I've been meaning to highlight: Teacher Pandering Getting Stale? The Chalkboard Newsweek's Jonathan Alter says it is time for America to stop pandering to teache...

More Newspapers With Education Blogs - Finally

Last summer, I somewhat over-enthusiastically predicted that there would be a big surge in newspapers with education blogs (Everybody On The Blogging Bandwagon). Well, that didn't pan out exactly, but they're slowly coming on line. And the latest is just started at the St. Petersburg Times in FL...

On The Internet, Everyone's Got Lots Of Readers

People always ask me how many folks read this blog, and I always tell them "One or two" -- which isn't all that far off. It's quality, not quantity. Others are taking a different tack, however. The NSBA's Board Buzz recently claimed that it had 100,000 unique visitors per month. Wow. The PEN Ne...

AFT Blog Scores President's Education Agenda

Kudos to the AFTies for being first to find and link to the President's education agenda, such as it is, in tonight's State of the Union. It's nothing unexpected, but it's the latest and offers some hints and details. Can we start the drinking game now, or do we have to wait until he actually star...

Catching Up With The EduBlogs

The Eduwonks point to a school where the Feds have required cheerleading for girls' sports as well as boys' (Federally-mandated Cheerleading). Jeff Jarvis discusses new ideas about spreading technology access (Two laptops per child ). Joe Williams at The Chalkboard says a top NYC education offici...

Russo On The HotSeat

From all the laughter in the background, I think Mike Petrilli and Rick Hess must do some mid-day drinking as part of their weekly Gadfly Show. Not that there's anything wrong with that. In fact, being on the show was a lot of fun, and they were kind and open-minded to have me on despite my being ...
