Education Matters turns 3 years old today

Education Matters turned 3 years old today. In that time
there have been nearly 800,000 unique views and not counting my mother and I
that’s still almost 1,500. I kid but I also figure something like 3 million posts
have been read.
Speaking of posts there has been over 4000 in the last three
years and over half of them were original material. The posts have been
featured on Buzzfeed, the Folio, the Times Union, State Impact, the Victims
Advocate and even the Washington Post.
There have been visitors from all over the world including
five digits worth of views from France, Germany and over 26,000 hits from Russia.
People have left nearly 1700 comments that I have accepted,
unfortunately due to some trolling I had to switch to moderating comments last

135 people have subscribed to the blog, which is very easy to do, hint, hint.

The most popular post is; The Florida Legislature moves the
goal posts on teachers, with over 5400 unique views.

But what I am most proud of is the dozens of people who have
contributed to the blog. When I started the blog I imagined it as a space where
teachers and stakeholders could come tell their stories and where it hasn’t
worked out quite that way, I always like it when I get a post from somebody

Thank you for all you do and have done for the students of this community. I appreciate your time and diligence in the face of adversity.

  2. Chris, your view from the trenches is an invaluable insight for those of us who could only see from the outside. Thank you for taking the time to share with us and having the passion to try to change things.
