'Tis The Season Of Self-Promotion?
As if last week's "Influentials" report wasn't self-aggrandizingly incestuous enough, this morning Eduwonk Andy rolls in with yet another effort to come up with an education pecking order based on EdWeek mentions (The 2006 Box Score!). I wonder where he got that idea from (Need a Quote?), and if his funders know he's spending their money counting EdWeek mentions and making little charts to show how big he is? Then again, Fordham spent big bucks to pay for the Influentials report, and EdWeek researched it. Then again, Fordham has been around long enough to warrant it, and has now put its money where its mouth is (authorizing charters in Ohio).
