Shallow, combative, and close-minded, this blog is arguably the worst blog on EdWeek.org, which includes more than just a couple of more reflective and reasonable blogs that you may not know about: On the Reservation, for example, chronicles the experiences of a second year SPED teacher on a reservation (on break until fall), while Certifiable? follows one teacher’s quest for national certification (still waiting to find out). Then there’s Ready or Not, about a career-changer. More are in the works. Of course, there’s also the Meier/Ravitch confab Bridging Differences (currently on break) and MA Zehr’s Learning the Language focused on ELL issues. No, EdWeek didn’t pay me to say this. But they should have.
