This permanent site in the library of the online New York Times offers a continually updated collection of extended features and short news stories on issues of education. Current posts include a lengthy feature entitled a "Teacher's Journal" in which a new teacher "recounts her year at a New York City failing school, where clocks never tick, the mantra is 'cover yourself' and students teeter on the ledge;" the latest news from the Culture Wars front (wherein a decidedly postmodern journalist reviews the latest efforts of the National Association of Scholars to save the "great books"); and the struggle of one woman scientist to change the male-dominated culture of science research. There are regular departments here dealing with college preparation, book reviews, student life, education debates, and other issues. Links to college news and resources are also provided as well as an issues forum on education. A good bookmark for those who work in or follow education, especially at the secondary and collegiate levels.
