Meier & Ravitch Join The Online Fray

By Alexander Russo — February 28, 2007 1 min read

As I mentioned last week in that long post about the lack of “grownups” writing about education, on Monday the unlikely duo of Diane Ravitch & Debbie Meier have run away and joined the circus started a blog of sorts. Called Bridging Differences and hosted at EdWeek, it’s now off and running. Congrats and condolences. My next mention of this blog will, invariably, be critical. Who’s next? Kozol? Kotlowitz? Maeroff? Murnane?

PS: Debbie Meier’s first foray online might well have been her comment from late 2005 about my infamous post about warring camps in education (“povracers and schoolrefs”), which she quite sensibly decried. You can check it out here.
