How to find good education blogs to read’s education category has dozens of good blogs on multiple topics within education. I’ve been reading there for a couple of weeks and this blog has been added there this week.

If you are interested in reading in education, Alltop is a good place to get information. They even let you customize the page according to your interests. If you aren’t interested in reading a particular feed, you can hit “hide” and the next time you come back, it won’t show up in your queue to read.

I am not quite sure what I am going to do about blogs I already subscribe too. I don’t want to read through them on Alltop, but unless they are big blogs, I don’t want to hide them either.

I have found a lot of interesting information there.

Links of interest:

A discussion of why value-added growth models aren’t quite useful.

The story of an adjunct who is fired for publicly identifying plagiarists. I think it is a bit odd that the failing grades were put on hold. I can understand the termination.

High school social skills matter a lot. “Lleras found that such social skills as conscientiousness, cooperativeness, and motivation were as important as test scores for success in the workplace.”

And one that I’ve been finding new blogs to follow on Education at has lots of other topics aggregated, but I like the education one the most.
