I don’t usually post insidery items on education journalism because it can only get you in trouble but I’ll make an exception here: Miami Herald chief education correspondent Matthew Pinzur has obviously pissed off the powers that be at that paper. Why? Well, because they’ve made him into their resident edublogger by launching Miami Gradebook, a new education blog. What other possible explanation is there? Just give him a sandwich board and be done with it!
More seriously, it looks like a good blog. Pinzur, who is well worth reading in print, is going to focus on South Florida education but also the national angles, particularly the intersection with state and federal policy and there is plenty happening on both scores now.
