Public Agenda has often done fascinating work on education issues -- telling us what folks really think, whether we want to hear it or not. To make education engagement a more regular thing, they’re going to re-start their education blog, called Reality CheckED. It (re)lanches tomorrow (the old one seems to have come and gone during the summer and fall of last year). Maybe they got some of that Gates money to make sure education is big in the upcoming campaign.
From the press release: “Public Agenda is all about keeping people talking and the positive effects of exchanging ideas and sharing perspectives. We want to encourage the discussions cropping up around current educational reforms. We will be drawing on our years of research to enhance the conversation and welcome you to jump in with ideas of your own.”
Welcome, and good luck.
