Media: Education's Huffington Post
Much to the consternation of the centrist reformers who simply can't believe that they don't own every media outlet out there, Valerie Strauss has turned her Washington Post blog into an education version of the Huffington Post, filled with mostly progressive voices poking holes in the centrist belief system. Sure, the Huffington Post has an education page, too, but the emphasis there seems to be on feel-good stories and quantity. Once in a while, she posts things from me, too, as in this repost of my argument against reauthorization. But there are lots of other folks there, too -- and if Strauss included centrist and even right-wing voices The Answer Sheet could become less predictable and even more compelling.
