Well deserved; I sent the blog address in for consideration along with several comments about the fine work being done. Perhaps many others may have done so as well.

It is nice to see this recommendation is actually going somewhere. The commitment by the principal authors at this blog to our community is absolutely Outstanding.

Congratulations to all involved.

Congratulations to the authors of the many fine comments to the postings as well.

Yay for us! I'll have to make time to look at the others because, naturally, I'd like to see what else is on the education radar for others (especially in other parts of the country).

Well, I did a quick zip through the whole list of nominees (thanks Dan). Most of them are written by teachers, some appear to have advertising and/or the bloggers are paid (not a slam but just a difference between what we do here) and one appears to be almost all You Tube links.

The Joanne Jacobs and Core Knowledge seem to be the most interesting to me. Best name? The Quick and the Ed. Favorite new educational phrase? Educational Romanticism defined as "the beliefthe belief that all children can learn equally well if we just improve the schools".
