Top Ten Edu-Earthquake Tweets

In case you've been too obsessed with waiver news to think about anything else, the D.C. metropolitan area just experienced a 5.8 magnitude earthquake. Naturally, this has major implications for K-12 policy that are best explored through Twitter.

So, with a tip of the hat to the Washington Post's Ezra Klein, here are the top ten earthquake related edutweets.

1) @EdPressSec: As @ArneDuncan begins a 2pm press call announcing RTT-ELC applications, DC is literally shaking with the news.

2) RT @whitd14: #dcquake. Even God was watching the Rick and Randi debate. @michaelpetrilli @JennaMSchuette @educationgadfly

3) @m_rhee: Despite earthquake, strong start to school year today is a great sign of continued progress at DCPS //bit.ly/mY3U1V #edreform

5) @elizabeth_green: Source on his response to the earthquake: he thought the UFT and DOE had reached a contract agreement. No dice.

6) @TeachCoachCraig: #earthquakedc D.C.-based Geography/Geology teachers must be rubbing their hands in glee. #earthquake as #teachablemoment

7) @MichaelPetrilli: Just read my @JayPGreene; it wasn't a quake, it was the movement for national standards collapsing: //bit.ly/pt3Yln

8) @andrewrotherham: OK, whose fault was that? Obama? Tea Party?

9) @NEAmedia NEA: headquarters in DC is safe. Thanks all for concern.

10) @murphymike: Bachmann out with first statement. As president, she'll lower quakes to 2.9
