Norm Scott sends along some bonus quotes from this morning’s ed blogs session. Alexander Russo sums it up here and here. From these snippets and Alexander’s summaries, it appears that our bloggy boys threw some barbs above the panel table.
“I urge all of you [researchers] to get in the fight.” (Russo - on the need for more researchers to engage with journalists and the blogosphere)
“Be humble.” (Andy Rotherham, on relaying what your study does and does not say to reporters)
“Sometimes [the blogs] seem like an echo chamber. We don’t want to say it’s what everyone is talking about it if [the education blogs] are just six people talking to each other.” (Jenny Medina, New York Times)
“Alexander offers a remarkably unsophisticated view of social science.” (Rotherham)
