Ever wanted to tell education reporters what to write?
I was in New York City last Friday attending a conference on teacher effectiveness held by the Education Writers Association. Besides several dozen education reporters from around the country, some very vocal teacher bloggers were invited as well.
I may write more later on the blog about what happened at the conference, which produced some lively debates on teacher recruitment and retention, professional development and schools of education. Today, though, I wanted to give teachers and principals who read the blog the chance to do what the teacher bloggers have done in the past week: suggest some stories we should be telling. The Education Writers Association has a blog called edbeat.net where you can find several posts about the conference as well as some links to blogs that teachers wrote listing story ideas they have for us.
I thought those links might begin the discussion. So take a look and post your suggestions here.
