Posting will be light until after the holidays, although you can always try me on Twitter. And check out the content on Ahead of the Heard and the teacher pension blog. In the meantime, here’s some stuff from 2017.
The ten most popular 2017 Eduwonk posts (in order):
In outside outlets this 74 look at Matt Damon’s school sleuthing and more general sleuthing skills got a good ride as did this off-edu USN look at the evolution of Ryan Zinke.
This 74 look at Betsy DeVos and public relations and USN on big questions for Betsy DeVos also did well. A lot of people wanted to read about the federal bathroom policy debate, too.
Campus stuff was popular and I think my favorite for the year was “Rig to Flip.” Hard to beat a fantastic river trip and life lessons.
And one random thing I turned up pulling this list: This Eduwonk post is five years old and pretty sleepy but for some reason got almost 70k views on it this year. Your guess is as good as mine. It’s not because it mentions David Brooks, similar archived content doesn’t get refreshed like that.
Thanks for reading. I wish you a restful holiday break and a peaceful, happy, and healthy 2018.
