Celebrate the National Day of Blogging for Real Education Reform on November 22

Tired of educators getting left out of the conversation on education reform? The National Day of Blogging for Real Education Reform — also known as the Day of National Blogging for Real Education Reform — is an opportunity for educators to blog about positive reform, using your expertise to talk about how education should be transformed for all learners. The event was created by the American Association of School Administrators and ASCD.

Write about the policies that work. Talk about what you’d like to see in the 21st Century classroom. Consider the systems that would help teachers work at their best, especially in low-performing or priority schools.

EdVoices will be participation in the National Day of Blogging for Education Reform, with original and syndicated content from the top bloggers in education.

  3. Democratic education is foundational to democracy.

  4. One of the driving issues influencing the discourse over Educational Reform is the much reported concern regarding the apparent academic achievement gap between students who reside in low-income, and often, minority communities, and their more affluent counterparts, in middle and upper income communities. Evidence of this achievement gap has been offered in a number of journal articles, books, and Internet sources. In recent years the issue of computer technology as a tool for improving education has served to extend the concerns regarding inequities in education and the resulting disparities in academic achievement. These issues serve to broaden the inquiries in regards to these inequality to include what is now termed ‘The Digital Divide.’ In acknowledgment and recognition of the digital divide, there have been a number of movements designed to increase the availability and access to computer and Internet technology in schools located in underrepresented communities. While there is little doubt about the laudable intentions of such movements, they have fallen significantly short of addressing the much broader and more relevant issue of how to successfully narrow this gap in academic achievement.

  5. Valuing authentic communication about day to day lesson plans rather than forcing limited meeting time on mapping curriculum on programs like “Atlas” in current “education speak” may not in fact be the best solution to helping teachers share. I think some of the current “tools” should be used in summer and paid for by curriculum specialist or teachers who want to earn extra money. During the school year, spending time sharing plans and sharing “best lessons” leads me to best practice and leads to aligned curriculum. Use the summers to map it. We need a longer school year for teachers to do what we need to do, but we need time without students to do what we need to do.
