To Too much pressure...

Schoolgate - Times Online - WBLG: The Ten Best Blogs about Education

Sarah Ebner was kind enough to mention my blog as a decent read. She must of caught my blog on a good day, because rumors of my competence are greatly exaggerated. Perhaps she found out I used to live in Cambridge... who knows?

In order to deflect attention away from myself, and relieve the guilt associated with not posting (or proofreading) nearly as often as I should), here are five blogs that are much better than mine, and truly must reads...

D-EdReckoning: Ken writes the most comprehensive, coherent, and educational blog around. If you disagree with him, there is a good chance that he will make you look silly. If you don't have facts or evidence to back your position, hang it up.

Teaching in the 408: TMAO is probably the best pure writer around. His blogs posts are as close to literature as you can get in the blogging world. Hopefully, he can keep his mad skills while writing for the Education Trust - West.

From the Trenches of Public Ed.: The more I learn about education, the more I find that I agree with most of what Dennis has to say. Don't tell him that, because he is officially my nemesis.

kitchen table math: What do you get when you combine the talents of 10 to 20 of intelligent parents and teachers, all focusing on math and math instruction,... only the best damn group blog around. Catherine Johnson anchors it all together, but the rest of the semi-regular posters kick ass as well.

NYC Educator: I am pretty sure that I am opposed to most of what NYC Educator posts, but I love that he doesn't mince words and he tells it like it is. I suspect that Major Bloomberg and Joel Klein have a secret department solely dedicated to keeping track of him.

Right Wing Nation: He isn't a pure education blogger, but when it comes to common sense and higher education, he is spot on. Lately he has been focused on the elections, but even if you don't agree with him, you can always steal some great recipes from his website.

Hi Rory, Thanks for the heads up. Not meaning to put too much pressure on you (although will you hate me for suggesting you change your heading to "too much" rather than "to much"?! Or was that deliberate.....?)
I am checking out all the other blogs that are being mentioned to me, and am glad I prompted you into writing more.
I'll keep on reading.

Argggg... English is such a silly language

Rory <--- several shades of red with embarrassment.

The biggest contribution I can make to education is to illustrate the importance of staying in school, instead of traipsing off around the world with the Air Force.

I hope you enjoy my recommendations Sarah... each and every one of them deserves it.
