Following Education News and Policy

A number of people have asked me what sites I follow to stay up-to-date on education news and policy, so I thought I'd make a list. I STRONGLY recommend using an RSS reader (Google Reader is my tool of choice) to keep track of these. Too many people I meet don't seem to know about news readers. Going to individual sites for news borders on masochistic.  Here are thirteen sites I follow that I'd recommend to someone wanting to really dig into the education topics of the day:

I'd like to think there's a combination of both neutral and opinionated coverage in the sites above, with opinions represented on both sides. If I've missed one of your favorites, list it in the comments below.
