In recent weeks, At the Chalk Face has added several authors who’ve made fantastic contributions. Since that time, I’ve noticed the web traffic increasing tremendously, the conversations between author and commenter have been open, honest, and provocative, and our impact on the education reform conversation is growing immensely.
At the Chalk Face began in February of 2010. Here’s the inaugural post which tries to explain the site and its intentions. Actually, the podcast came first, then reluctantly, the blog. I was told one could not happen without the other. Fine.
But now, At the Chalk Face is becoming a very powerful voice, at least within the circles of those whom we trust to have the best interests of children in mind. We now have a presence in multiple spaces: Facebook, YouTube, Blog Talk Radio, iTunes, Stitcher, Pinterest, and Twitter.
In time, I hope to see At the Chalk Face become a location, an intellectual and activist space, rather than a discrete individual writers. In time, we may simply be At the Chalk Face rather than talking about or writing for.
Please continue to join us and support our efforts. We are working hard to defend public schools.
