The purpose of the blog is to explore ideas within education and to promote discourse about them. We plan to hit timely issues and hot topics, to dispel educational urban legends, and to have a bit of fun. We understand that navigating post-secondary choices can be cumbersome and overwhelming- we have instituted the blog to help. We will have guest bloggers (experts in various arenas of education), adolescent bloggers (those in the trenches), and others who have a valid opinion to add. We welcome your ideas for blog topics. Please feel free to submit them in the Suggest a Blog Section of the Home Page.
