Introducing Our Blogroll

From time to time we come across blogs that we believe would be of interest to our readers. Each of these deals with a different aspect of the world of education and their writers have a number of different perspectives. We hope you enjoy them.

Special Education Law Blog is written by Charles P. Fox, a Chicago, Illinois attorney who is also a parent of child with special needs. Fox, and his occasional guest writers, focus on legal and legislative news and deal with the broad spectrum of disabilities, not just learning issues.

The Wrightslaw Way blog from the team at the Wrightslaw website continues the mission of providing information on legal and practical issues dealing with K-12 special education laws. This blog is particularly helpful because of its question and answer format; it allows parents to raise specific questions regarding practices and procedures and get answers that help them navigate the system.

The Inside Schools Bloggers include parents, educators, and students. Each blogger has his or her blogs listed on the home page of the blog and readers can follow the day's post or the work of a particular writer. All of the blogs relate to the work of Inside Schools, which is to inform New York City parents about city schools and how they operate.

The New York Times Choice Blog, written by Jacques Steinberg, New York Times education writer and author of  The Gatekeepers: Inside the Admissions Process of a Premier College, looks at all aspects of the college admissions process and financing a college education.

We'll keep updating our list of blogs and hope you will let us know of blogs you recommend. We'll be pleased to check them out and share them with our readers.
