I want to let you know about the pro bono foundations of ed website that SPE members Ed Rozycki and I operate. It deals with a wide variety of educational related issues and now attracts over 3 million visitors a year. You can visit and poke around by clicking on this link: http://www.newfoundations.com. Feel free to submit articles or links for inclusion.
You also might want to take a look at the first and second issues of New Educational Foundations — an electronic ed journal that four colleagues and I founded six months back. We intend it to be a “…forum for independent-minded teachers, professors, administrators, and researchers who prefer intelligent practice over merely implementing the will of others. We fear that “professionals” who just do what they are told may as easily serve a tyranny as a democracy; and, if they’re good enough at it, it becomes hard to tell the difference. There are alternatives to this scenario, and NEF will explore those alternatives.”
You might like to submit something for inclusion.To date we’ve had more than 12,000 downloads of our first two issues and now are looking for contributions for our third issue. Maybe you would like to add your voice. If so, please send your manuscript for review to: firstname.lastname@example.org. We do not favor any particular ideology. As a matter of fact, we intend that this journal be trans-ideological. Our emphasis is on ideas and dialogue.
Here are links to the first and second issues of New Educational Foundations.
