One thought, we keep hearing from the usual suspects that the education debate would be different if only people listened to teachers more. That’s probably true but perhaps not exactly like they think. Getting teachers’ voices out there is important and the blogging medium gives teachers a pretty democratic way to air their views. But curiously enough they all don’t say what the usual suspects do! While some of it’s generational, some of it is just that interest groups are sometimes misaligned with significant parts of their membership.
