Colorado (Education Blog) Is In The House

By Alexander Russo — May 11, 2007 1 min read

Welcome to Schools For Tomorrow, the new blog from HeadFirst Colorado, the education magazine that describes itself as “education on the edge.” Already in its first week, the blog has tackled topics as diverse as the Tough Choices report and the exodus of students from Denver Public Schools. And, lest you think Colorado is some sort of school reform wasteland, remember that Ed In ’08 honcho Roy Romer used to be governor there, much-touted outsider superintendent Michael Bennett is pushing hard there (especially on the ELL and charter fronts), and that the Gates Foundation’s first major debacle, the failed conversion of Manuel High School, took place there.

UPDATE: I have written for HeadFirst and may do some work for them in the future.
