Carnival of Education Time @ The Education Wonks

Swing over to The Education Wonks for this week's Carnival of Education, a roundup of the best and brightest writing on schools, teaching, and edupolicy in the blogosphere. Noteworthy this week:
  • Writing a Parent Handbook from a teacher's point of view (from A Teacher's Perspective)
  • The Ten Commandments of Public Education -- which do you agree with? (from Going to the Mat)
  • Harvard student and disgraced novelist Kaavya Viswanathan had a high school chemistry teacher who now has some ideas about using her situation as a teachable moment on plagiarism in the classroom (from the ChemJerk blog)
  • Since it changed format, student scores on the SAT have dropped, and Mrs. Cornelius thinks she knows why. Be sure to check out the commentary section (from The Shrewdness of Apes)
There's lots more, so if you want to learn about education and have your ideas challenged, go take a stroll on the carnival midway.

The generic goal of increased communication between schools is a safe item to post on this blog. However, the weaknesses in this post are as follows:

1. Best communication form? How to get the message to parents that are already overwhelmed with email, SMS, and other factors that cause information overload?

The second major flaw with this blog is the collaboration with the community. This article assumes that parents and all JIS stakeholders have the time and are available to assist in the JIS decision making process. Furthermore, this assumes that parents are mature enough to make a collaborative decision, not a power struggle decision.
