By Larry Ferlazzo — December 26, 2013 2 min read

I’ll get back into the regular schedule of “questions of the week” next week, but I thought readers might find it useful to see the ten most popular posts from this blog in 2013.

But, before I list them, I wanted to invite you to contribute a question to be answered in a future post. You can send one to me at lferlazzo@epe.org.When you send it in, let me know if I can use your real name if it’s selected or if you’d prefer remaining anonymous and have a pseudonym in mind.

You can also contact me on Twitter at @Larryferlazzo.

Anyone whose question is selected for this weekly column can choose one free book from a variety of education publishers.

And, now, for the “top ten.” I’ll count them down to the number one post at the end:
