The 2009 Education Blog Contest
My incomparable colleague Jay Mathews--czar of Class Struggle and author extraordinaire, has put out a best education blogs list for the last two years. Now we are doing it together.
When he started the list, neither of us were bloggers. Now that we each face the daily pressures of being both interesting and true, we face this responsibility reborn, determined to make this the best list of the best education blogs. Ever. In history.
So tell us your favorites, and what it is that keeps you going back. Please send us at firstname.lastname@example.org or to me or as comments to this post, the web addresses of no more than three of the best education blogs you know. Tell us in a just a few words why you like each one.
Jay and I will select a different 10 for our 2009 list of 20 best blogs, which we hope to post by December. I have a list of blogs on the right hand side of this blog; if you want to include them, that's fine, but give us three that are not listed as well.
What qualities will impress us? Jay has a weakness for blogs that target him, as he says, "as the spawn of the devil." I like those too--the ones that target Jay as the spawn of the devil. I also like blogs that tell me something new, or something old in a new way, or something old that just needs to be repeated (such as that school reform that doesn't take poverty into consideration is doomed to failure).
We await your submissions. Thanks in advance.
