Welcome to InsideEd!
That's right, at long last, we've changed our name. Much as we love to connect with classrooms, we think InsideEd better reflects our mission: to stimulate dialogue among those who work inside the world of education, and to provide an insider's guide to parents trying to navigate the educational system.
We've been making some changes to our site in the past few weeks. We have a new blogroll and a new list of ed-related sites we use. Tomorrow, we'll put up as a permanent post a glossary of education-related jargon (K-12 to start, though we can get into higher ed later). Feel free to send additional educationese our way. We'll also have periodic "How To" posts explaining different components of the educational bureaucracy.
We've started an occasional "Where Are They Now?" feature, catching up with newsmakers of education stories past.
So you can get to know us better, we've all posted new bios of ourselves. If you've ever wondered why John-John gets to have two Johns in his name while I, for instance, have only one Sara, here's your chance to get the scoop.
