I want to commend the tumblr editors. Since I mentioned the lack of students in the #education tag- there has been an incredible upsweep of student involvement.
GWLAP and PPT have done an excellent job building this tag. Adventures In Learning, more than any other editor, understands the need for student voices. His movement, imagining learning, is exactly what I advocated. It’s so good too know that there are people out there who are taking real world steps to amend this fault.
If you’re not on this list: either re-blog or message me and I’ll edit you in. I may publish this list on my education blog just to make connections easier. If you would like your blog to be on this list- message me.

A quick note to editors and students: More students contribute under the #homeschooling and #unschooling tag. Unschool students- tag your posts with #education.
Other Teens Who Write About Education
Students need to write more about education. Teachers need to direct more posts to students. The tag should be a place not only for teachers to connect with teachers, but for students to connect with students. And, of course, for teachers and students to talk about fixing education.
