I was recently a guest blogger for eduwonkette. She's pushing up against my guideline of having a Technorati authority of less than 100, so I figure now is as good a time as any to name her as the next recipient of the crimson megaphone. For those of you who are unfamiliar with her, eduwonkette is the pseudonym of an anonymous professor somewhere. I don't know much about her other than that she's super fun to read because of her willingness to inject levity and attitude into her blogging. This, of course, makes her blog one that deserves a bigger audience (DABA). You'll also see that she often sparks fascinating discussions in her comment areas. If you're looking for a lighthearted, and yet somehow still serious, look at major policy issues in education, eduwonkette's a great bet.
Here are a few posts to get you started (see also her posts before she moved to Education Week):
- It's a Small World After All
- Social Studies, Science, and NCLB
- My Value-Added Bucket List
- Americans' Attitudes on Inequality: A Teacher's Dilemma
- Professors Strike Back?
- The NYC Teacher Experiment Revisited
- Do Schools Matter?
