If you’re interested in educational policy issues and you’re not reading Dr. Bruce Baker, you should be. Bruce is the author of CASTLE’s school finance / policy blog, School Finance 101. The blogging that he’s done lately has been absolutely phenomenal (plus he’s inspired me to finally learn how to use GIS software). You also can follow Bruce on Twitter.
