ASCD Gets it Right!

Educational Leadership, the journal for ASCD (Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development), always seems to have "on target" articles and information.  This month is no different.  The Dec. 2011/Jan. 2012 issue is packed with expertise.  I wonder who is listening.  This is one organization worth joining for the monthly information, the journal, and books sent out several times a year.  This issue ties several issues of budgets, public schools using the corporate reform movement, oportunities, thinking outside the box, parent opinions, and teacher quality.  It's like being back in grad school with bright minds pushing for answers and talking through the issues schools face.  Questions are raised and cases are presented of school success. There are many professional organizations.  This one keeps you tuned to the current issues and keeps the dialog up to date, while helping you to understand issues and stay in the fight for good public education.
