    Editor's e-Picks for Education News

    by Kathleen Carpenter - Editor, Teachers.Net Gazette

    You want to be well-informed, and the Internet provides access to a wealth of information, but what busy educator has time to surf the sites of all major publications for articles related to the field of education?

    Do as I do...let someone else do the surfing for you! There are a number of reliable e-newsletter services available FREE to educators.

    Following is a list of my favorite sources for news and commentary related to education. The host organizations gather links to articles from English language newspapers online and deliver them directly to my e-mail box daily or weekly. They're all reliable, all are free!

    The following e-newsletters post titles and links to several articles in each issue, along with brief summaries. With all, the subscription and unsubscribe processes are simple, a welcome feature for those who wish to eliminate a pile-up of mail when on vacation. (Daily-including weekends!)

    Host: Jimmy Kilpatrick, Education News.Org

    PEN Weekly NewsBlast (Weekly-on Fridays)
    Host: Public Education Network

    District Daily e-Newsletter (Daily, Monday-Friday)

    Host: District Administration Magazine

    ASCD SmartBrief (Daily, Monday-Friday)
    Host: Association for Supervision & Curriculum Development

    And of course, The Teachers.Net Gazette by e-mail.
    You can sign up to receive by e-mail a clickable index of every article in the monthly Teachers.Net Gazette.
    To subscribe, type your e-mail address in the "Gazette Home Delivery" form available in the left frame on every page of the Teachers.Net Gazette, or sign up on
