Voices in Education

Welcome to Voices in Education
Welcome to Voices in Education: The Blog of the Harvard Education Publishing Group. Throughout the year, our authors, contributors, commentators, and friends will guest blog on our new Voices in Education blog site, commenting on a variety of critical issues facing the field of education. By presenting a diversity of voices, we aim to keep the blog fresh and to give you the opportunity to hear more from our distinguished authors and colleagues. With the launch of Voices in Education, we will provide our readers and the education field with an additional source for the finest and most interesting information and commentary within the field.

In the coming months we plan to feature blog entries from some of the leading writers and researchers in education, including:
  • David Berliner, Regents' Professor of Education at Arizona State University in Tempe and past president of the American Educational Research Association.
  • Karin Chenoweth, a long-time education writer who currently writes for The Education Trust; author of “It’s Being Done”: Academic Success in Unexpected Schools.
  • Robert Rothman, principal associate at the Annenberg Institute for School Reform at Brown University and frequent contributor to the Harvard Education Letter.
  • Ron Ferguson, faculty cochair and director of the Achievement Gap Initiative at Harvard University, and author of Toward Excellence with Equity.
  • Frederick Hess, director of education policy studies at the American Enterprise Institute and executive editor of Education Next.
  • Laura A. Cooper, assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction, Evanston Township High School.
  • Charles Taylor Kerchner, research professor at Claremont Graduate University.
  • Michael J. Feuer, executive director of the Division of Behavioral and Social Sciences and Education in the National Research Council of the National Academies.
  • Ruben Gaztambide-Fernandez, assistant professor in the Department of Curriculum, Teaching and Learning at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education of the University of Toronto.
These are just a few of the individuals who will be contributing to this exciting new forum. Voices in Education will also allow readers to comment on the blog entries in order for conversations to develop on many critical issues in education.

In addition to Voices in Education, our website also includes RSS feeds that will allow you to hear about Harvard Education Publishing Group news and events as soon as they are posted. You can also send an email to a friend when you see something on the site that you think would be of interest.

I hope you will check back in the weeks to come as we begin this exciting new project.
