This blog from NPR gathers stories of teachers and teaching, education, and other school-related topics. The site can be scouted by category (k-12, higher ed, learning & tech, and common core), or readers may like to simply skim the latest on the well-designed landing page. Recent stories have included articles and podcasts about a possible hiring bias that, for once, favors women; the current debates about No Child Left Behind; and the rising costs of room and board at universities. For inspiration - and perhaps to counter other, less positive portrayals of teachers in the media - some readers may be especially interested in the 50 Great Teachers tab, which hosts stories about teachers who have gone above and beyond for their students.
