We are always delighted when others start their own discussions about education in Seattle. There are a number of blogs - some more active than others, some more public than others - in addition to this one.
I would like to introduce a newcomer to the discussion: Let it Rain... Close the Gap. There is a mirror site at http://letitrainclosethegap4.blogspot.com/, but I think that the one without the "4" is the main one. It's hard to say. Also there is a little problem with duplicate threads - not sure if they will fix that.
The blog is administered by Jess Hasken who, I believe, is a TFA alum (2007-2009), and is now working as an organizer for Stand for Children.
In one of her first blog posts, Ms Hasken wrote that this blog was part of a "misinformation campaign". When I responded with a comment asking her to quote some of that misinformation, my comment was deleted. So I guess it's going to be like that.
Welcome to the conversation Let it Rain.
By the way, Stand for Children has a blog, but it is heavily moderated and does not accept comments it doesn't like.
The Alliance for Education has a blog, but it is so heavily moderated that it doesn't publish any comments at all.
