FYI: Hitting on a topic near and dear to our hearts (obviously), The Washington Post published an article today on the growth of teacher blogs. Here’s the essence:
On one level, blogs are little more than personal journals posted on the Internet for all to see. They provide a forum for teachers to share ideas with colleagues around the world or simply talk about themselves and others. But under a wider lens, the sometimes funny, sometimes searing blogs paint what may be the rawest portrait seen of the teaching profession in transition—and by some measures, in trouble.
Hmm. Looks like they pretty much figured out why we maintain this blog.
