The education blogosphere lit up on Monday in response to the Day of National Blogging for Real Education Reform, promoted by the American Association of School Administrators and Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development.
Across the country, education reform has been a hotly debated topic in recent months, particularly following the introduction of Obama's "Race to the Top" policies. Some tactics of reform, including charter schools and teacher evaluations based on student test scores, remain divisive issues among parents, educators, politicians and unions.
Pre-K through 12th-grade educators were encouraged to blog, tweet and post their thoughts on Facebook about education reform successes and thoughts on change throughout the day.
Up for discussion between education professionals:
- Can we fire our way to success?
- What role do charter schools play in driving public school transformation? Are there charter schools in your community? How have they impacted your school division's transformation?
- What state and federal policies have driven the students in your school to success? Describe your experience as a school division leader and how it has been impacted by governmental policy. Moving forward, what kind of policies do you advocate?
