When looking for understanding and information, most people turn first to the Internet, and in return, people with information are sharing it via online sites and blogs. As an organization geared towards providing resources to those involved in education, we wanted to share some of our favorite education research blogs in the hopes that it contributes to those researching education and builds closer ties among the community of students, teachers and administrative professionals.
