Allies & Advocates

  • Badass Teachers Association (BAT) Blog

    "This is for every teacher who refuses to be blamed for the failure of our society to erase poverty and inequality, and refuses to accept assessments, tests and evaluations imposed by those who have contempt for real teaching and learning."

  • The Becoming Radical

    Paul Thomas of Furman University

    Paul is a true intellect of our time. The site is more than just about education. Very thoughtful and imaginative critique of the issues of our time. He has been an editor of several very scholarly books. I am fortunate enough have a chapter on Obama and education in one of them.

  • Ed Notes Online

    A truly and wonderful radical commentary on public schools and teachers. Any classroom teacher will immediately connect to the teacher advocacy that beams from this site.

  • FairTest (National Center for Fair & Open Testing)

    Monty Neill's well-established site on all testing issues. Overall, probably the best site on testing on the net. I donate to them every year.

  • Alfie Kohn's Website

    Kohn has been a long-time opponent of the reform movement's fixation on testing, rating, ranking, and blaming.

  • Dr. Hooville

    My small Facebook site for important news updates related to education.

  • Susan Ohanian

    Susan is a long-time ally with a very distinguished career and a scholar, teacher, and activist in the anti-reformist movement. She has used much of my own research in her writing and presentations. I first met her at a conference on testing at Ohio University in the early 2000s and was immediately impressed.

  • Diane Ravitch’s Blog

    If you don’t know about Ravitch, you should. She is the leading teacher advocate in the United States.

  • Network for Public Education

    This is the site for national-level organizing against the reformists. It is cutting edge and I encourage everyone to join. Diane Ravitch founded this group and is the leader of its activism.

  • Bill Phillis—Ohio E & A Mailing List

    The Ohio Coalition for Equity & Adequacy of School Funding

    Bill Phillis is absolutely the most dedicated hero of Ohio schools. This is a mailing list that deals with critical issues of funding schools in Ohio. Well worth subscribing to.

  • Where the Blog has No Name

    A very interesting blog by a friend and colleague, E. Wayne Ross of the University of British Columbia

  • Jan Resseger’s Blog

    Jan is a Cleveland Heights resident and an active supporter of public schools and their educators. She has fought against the onslaught of standardized testing for many years. She was in charge of programming and support for public schooling justice for the United Church of Christ from 1998-2013. Her Blog includes topics on national education reform and Ohio issues as well.

  • Anthony Cody

    Anthony Cody spent 24 years working in Oakland schools, 18 of them as a science teacher at a high-needs middle school. A National Board-certified teacher, he now leads workshops with teachers on Project Based Learning. He is the co-founder of the Network for Public Education. This site is incredibly well done and a tremendous source for critical analysis of issues affecting public schools and their educators.
